How the Brain Works

16 How the Brain Works - Raúl Andero

Neuroscience is an incredibly rich discipline that covers a variety of topics related to health, society, and education. One of its branches focuses on the study of the biological substrates of behavior and the underlying mental processes. To understand behavior, and the mind, it is necessary to know how the components of the nervous system are organized and how their interactions result in normal function.

The present 3rd edition of this course will provide students with the necessary knowledge to understand how the brain works in health and disease. Moreover, different drugs and their effects upon brain function will be reviewed. Neurophysiological and neurochemical approaches will be used to understand the relationships between different behavioral processes and their biological substrates. At the end of this course students will gain valuable knowledge in Neuroscience helpful for their daily lives.

Also, your teachers will be available throughout the course to mentor those students interested in receiving advice about their careers in Neuroscience or in any other field. In brief, we want to create a community of bright students that interact with each other and experience scientific teamwork by working on a final project.
