Unformatted text preview: Biological Foundations of Behaviour Part II Shahin Zangenehpour, PhD September 16, 2010 1 Objectives 1. Defne the nervous system as an a centre-piece For sensory/perceptual processing. 2. Study the anatomy and physiology oF nerve cells. 3. Examine an example oF stimulus-physiology coupling. 4. Review an example oF physiology-behaviour coupling. 5. Consider an example oF brain-behaviour relationship. 6. Explore the concept oF gene-environment interplay as a determinant oF behaviour.
