MELS 211-BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY (2Cr.:2Lec,0Lab,0Tut):
Biological Psychology places the physiology and neuroscience of behavior firmly in the broader context of psychology via weaving in perspectives from evolutionary psychology and using current and relevant real-life examples. This course justifies why psychologists need to understand some biology, and in so doing, distinguish four types of explanation involved: causal, developmental/learning, evolutionary and functional.
