Prerequisites There is no prerequisite for this course.
Recommended Optional Programme Component
Course Objectives This course aim to provides a basis for understanding the way in which biological mechanisms participate in behavior.
Course Content The student will be able to: 1. Describe the physiological basis of psychology. Physiological Psychology is an interdisciplinary science which aims to investigate the interaction between brain and behavior. 2. Fundamentally understand of neuronal communication, neuroanatomy, and cognitive phenomena such as memory, emotion and language 3. Understand how cognitive function are affected by changes to the underlying neural structure and function.
Learning Outcomes (LO) The students who attended the course and were successful at the end of semester will acquire the followings; 1.Students will identify the different structures of the central and peripheral nervous system. 2. Students will analyze basic relationships between the structure and functions of different regions of the brain using a physiological approach to understanding human behavior 3. Students will develop a understanding of communication within a neuron and communication between neurons. 4.Srudent will ıdentify the major neurotransmitters and discuss the impact of each on behavior. 5.Students will understand organization of major brain structures. 6.The student will gain an understanding of the nervous system's role in certain neurological and psychological disorders;
