Specific topics include integrated physiology and pathology of higher brain processing; genetics, pathology, and pharmacology of brain disorders; and normal and abnormal human behavior. The content of this course will include roughly the second half of the current NMED plus the second block of SoBe I, which includes mainly psychopathologies.
