PSY2081: Biological Basis of Behavior: Part B

Credits 2
Continuing development of neuropsychological and neurophysiological principles underlying cognition, language, memory, emotion, and personality will be explored and linked to clinical practice. Application of these principles to trauma work, health psychology, and psychopharmacology will be examined. Basic models of the pharmacologic actions of allopathic drugs and homeopathic remedies will be investigated, as well as clinical indicators that suggest the use and value of medication. In addition, the student will be encouraged to explore transpersonal dimensions of neuropsychology such as alternatives to medication.
