PSYC 175 Current Topics in Behavioral Neuroscience

This course will explore historical and modern accounts of reward and motivation.  We will also address what role these processes could play in addictions and what aspects of addiction might involve other processes.  Equal focus will be paid to behavioral and neural components.  The course will emphasize research using small animal models to understand them.  Students will become familiar with broadly applicable concepts and research methods used in the behavioral neuroscience of reward and motivation.
