Check regularly.Textbooks: [required]   Pinel, J.P.J. (2010). Biopsychology, 9th Edition. --the course will largely be based off of the material in this text --online and supplemental components of this text are non-essential —use 8 th  edition at own risk (though appears similar) [supplementary]   Kandel, E.R. et al., Principles of Neural Science --I will supplement the course with biological and physiological content from this text --this text is very extensive, heavy and expensive. But older editions are cheaper and still excellent resources. Highly recommended if you have a serious interest in neuroscience.
