NEUR4850 Comparative Neuroanatomy and Behaviour

This advanced course explores the link between the nervous system and natural behaviours across a wide range of species. Some of the examples to be covered include: bats, weakly electric fish, owls, songbirds, voles, locusts and moles. We will explore these non-traditional animal models and how they are used in neuroscience to better understand fundamental principles of brain function and the evolution of the brain. Students should have a background in neuroscience or animal behaviour.
