Humans everywhere are turning to the brain for answers to questions that have plagued our species for centuries: Why do people do evil things? What is love? Why do we dream? How do we remember? What is consciousness? Address these questions from the perspectives of physiology, pharmacology, pathology, psychology, and philosophy. After becoming acquainted with the methods and tools that researchers employ in their studies, explore puzzling questions by examining evolving theories and contemporary methodologies in science and philosophy. Examine the basic structural and organizational aspects of neuroanatomy and physiology, study current research regarding sleeping/dreaming, consciousness, behavioral disorders, neuropathology, memory, and artificial intelligence.
