Advanced Behavioral Neuroscience (PSY 336) will not be offered in the Spring 2012 semester, however, Prof. Tracy will be offering either Psychology of Motivation (focused on the topic of food and eating) or a new course in Psychopharmacology in that semester. Either course offered will have a lab component and will count as a 300-level elective course for the Psychology major and the Neuroscience concentration. The prerequisite for either course will be PSY 246 or NRS 250. Advanced Cognitive Psychology (PSY 360), offered in the Fall 2011 semester, also fulfills the 300-level science elective requirement for the Neuroscience concentration. (Posted April 15, 2011)
