PSY 465 - Neurobehavioral Toxicology

2018-2019 Catalog Year:

This course will cover basic issues in developmental and behavioral toxicology, examining environmental toxicants that act primarily on the nervous system. We will examine how developmental and behavioral effects are studied, and explore hypothesized and established neural and behavioral mechanisms of action. Both human and animal behavior will be compared, and the validity of those comparisons discussed. Finally how the field impacts public policy decisions will be examined from the standpoint of making policy decisions and communicating hazard and risk to the public.

Note: Course may be repeated for a total of 12 credits.
Prerequisite: PSY 290 and either PSY 303 or 403.
