Neurobiology and Behavior, Week 9
Welcome to the on-line forum associated with the Biology 202 at Bryn Mawr College. Its a way to keep conversations going between course meetings, and to do so in a way that makes our conversations available to other who may in turn have interesting thoughts to contribute to them. Leave whatever thoughts in progress you think might be useful to others, see what other people are thinking, and add thoughts that that in turn generates in you.
As always, you're free to write about whatever thoughts you add this week. But if you need something to get you started, we're started looking at boxes bigger than neurons, and associated cables, beginning on the motor side of the nervous system. What new ways of thinking about behavior/psychology come from adding reafferent loops and the I-function to central pattern generators and corollary discharge? What questions remain, and/or newly arise given these observations/concepts?
