This includes the relationship between the brain, hormones, neurotransmitters and behavior, as well as the interplay between genes and the environment and how they modify the brain and ultimately behavior.

Integration of personal values

Students will improve their ability to integrate personal values and belief systems with the principles of psychology and the biological bases of behavior.
