This practicum consists of a weekly seminar meeting and a laboratory component. Students will discuss topics related to behavioral neuroscience research and conduct a research project in collaboration with the instructor. Research projects typically relate to feeding and involve behavioral assays, pharmacological manipulations, and/or neuroimaging with mice as the model species. For the lab component, students are required to work in the animal facility for at least 1 hour per week. When taken in the senior year, this practicum fulfills the comprehensive requirement in psychology and neuroscience.
