|LEARNING OUTCOMES OF THE COURSE UNIT
||At the end of this course, the students;
1) Will gain knowledge on physiological foundations of behavior on both cellular and systemic level.
2) Will learn principal components of central and peripheral nervous systems and their effects on behavior.
3) Will learn that physiological processes are important variables in exploring behavior and that trying to explore behavior without taking these processes into consideration would be a limited approach.
4) Will learn that human behavior is a whole which is affected by many variables such as physiology, culture and personality.
