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.
You're free to write about whatever came into your mind this week, but if you need something to get you started: We've begun to move into the space between neurons and behavior, the creation of new properties by interconnected neuronal circuits. In addition to central pattern generation, we now have corollary discharge. Does this help us make sense of behavior in terms of neurons? In what ways? With what limitations?
