BIOL 383 - Hormones and Behavior

Semester Offered: Fall and Spring
1 unit(s)
This course is a comparative examination of hormones and behavior in animals. We take an evolutionary approach to this topic by emphasizing (1) the common selective pressures that act on all animals and the common hormonal and behavioral responses to these pressures, and (2) how extreme selective pressures drive the evolution of unique mechanisms in the field of behavioral endocrinology. Half lecture, half student led discussions from the primary literature. Kelli Duncan.

Prerequisite(s): two units of 200-level biology.

Two 75-minute periods.
