What Will You Learn?

  • Nature and Scope of Biopsychology: Understand the foundational principles and scope of biopsychology, exploring its interdisciplinary nature and the study of biological processes underlying behavior.
  • Neurophysiology: Gain insights into nerve cells (neurons), nerve impulses, and synapses, learning how electrical and chemical signals contribute to neural communication.
  • Brain Functions: Explore the biological basis of emotional behaviors, wakefulness and sleep cycles, as well as the neurobiology underlying learning, memory, and intelligence.
  • Methods in Biopsychology: Learn about various experimental methods used in biopsychology, such as ablation methods, histological techniques, psychophysiological recording methods, electrical and chemical stimulation, stereotaxic lesion procedures, and neuroimaging technologies.
  • Genetics and Behavior: Examine the role of genetics in behavior, studying how genes influence psychological traits and susceptibility to psychological disorders.
  • Psychopathology: Understand how biopsychology contributes to the study of psychological disorders, exploring the neurobiological mechanisms underlying disorders such as depression, schizophrenia, and anxiety.
