The approach to the human nervous system within this section of the course is concerned with the structure of individual nerve cells, impulse transmission, and the basic organization and major divisions of the human nervous system. There is emphasis on integrating this material with other domains of biology such as molecular and cell biology. However, in the psychology and sociology portion of the course, you will find additional resources treating the human nervous system. Within that section there is a somewhat different focus, for example, treating with greater depth the anatomical areas of the brain which affect cognition and behavior.
