Prerequisite: PSYC 300 with a grade of "C" or better
Advisory: Completion of ENGRD 310 with a grade of "C" or better.
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B2; IGETC Area 5B
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: The primary focus of this course is on the vertebrate nervous system and how it functions to produce and affect behavior. This course provides an in-depth examination of the structure of the brain and nervous system, neural development, neural communication, interactions between the nervous and endocrine systems, and functional specializations within both systems. To supplement the study of the anatomy of the nervous system, students will utilize additional materials to identify major divisions and structures of the nervous system. Relationships between neural function and sensation, perception, movement, the biorhythms of wakefulness and sleep, homeostasis, motivation, emotion, reproduction, learning, memory, language, cognition, and consciousness are examined. The neural bases of addiction, mood disorders, and schizophrenia are also addressed (C-ID PSY 150)

General Education: CSU Area B3; IGETC Area 5B
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LAB
Description: This course involves the applied study of the nervous system, focusing on its anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and impact on behavioral and mental processes. This course will provide a foundation in the principles of the scientific method and practical experience in its application to the study of biological psychology. Specific topics include neuroanatomical organization of the nervous system with special emphasis on the brain; anatomy and physiology of the neuron; physiology of nerves and nerve conduction; anatomy and physiology of sensory systems; and psychophysical examination of sensorimotor processes and states of consciousness. Brain dissection procedures, interactive computer simulations, and lab experiments including EEG and EMG data collection will be utilized.
