Neurons generate action potentials.  Brains underlie feeding, fighting, fleeing, and reproduction, also navigation, attention, sociality, art, and science.  What about the middle part?  This advanced seminar course examines the construction of neural circuits and systems that enable achievement of behavioral goals.  The curriculum emphasizes integration across levels of analysis and organization, including cellular and synaptic physiology, the emergent properties of networks, energy and information management, quantitative modeling, cognitive algorithms, and adaptive behavioral outcomes.
