Brain function determines our behavior and dictates who we are. Our brain function governs our every thoughts and every action. The brain processes information through the concerted activity of many neurons, which communicate with each other through contacts we call synapses organized in highly dynamic networks. In this course, we are taking a bottom up approach to studying the brain, starting from molecules to end with behaviors and mental disorders.
