  • Describe and analyze the contributions of anatomical, physiological, behavioral, pharmacological, developmental, and cell and molecular biological studies to the bases of neuroscience.
  • Integrate pathological findings from psychology, psychiatry, physiology, and clinical neurology with basic scientific work in the neurosciences.
  • Describe neural mechanisms of motor control, sensory processing, homeostatic maintenance, neuromodulation and higher cognitive functions (e.g. learning, memory and emotions).
  • Identify appropriate applications of neuroscientific knowledge in health, service, education, or business professions.
  • Use critical thinking to analyze and critique the literature and compare textbook, popular and peer-reviewed scholarly reports in the neurosciences.
