Course Objectives The aim of this course is to introduce the main concepts of an introductory to the structure (ANATOMY), function(PHYSIOLOGY), and dysfunction (PATHOLOGY) of the human nervous system.
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. Comrehending the background and the history of the physiological psychology 2. Defining the different structures of the central and peripheral nervous system. 3. Comprehending basic relationships between the structure and functions of different regions of the brain using a physiological approach to understanding human behavior 4. Identifing the major neurotransmitters and discuss the impact of each on behavior. 5. Comprehending the basic concepts of research methods in physiological psychology 6. Having knowledge of the nervous system's role in certain neurological and psychological disorders.
