Brain and behavior are inextricably linked in neuroscience. The function of the brain is to govern behavior, and the aim of this course is to causally link biophysical mechanisms with simple behaviors studied in mice. The brain processes information through the concerted activity of many neurons, which communicate with each other through synapses organised in highly dynamic networks. The first goal of the course is to gain a detailed understanding of the structure and function of the fundamental building blocks of the mammalian brain, its synapses and neurons. The second goal is to understand neuronal networks, with specific emphasis on the interactions of excitatory glutamatergic and inhibitory GABAergic neurons. The third goal is to place neuronal network function in the context of sensory processing ultimately leading to behavioral decisions and motor output.

Brain is center part of living organisms which control the all activities of living organisms such digestion system , respiration system mean we can control the somatic and autonomic nervous system ,, basically we are going to understand baisc structure of the brain , especially human brain is divided into the three parts ,which are given below
1) fore brain
3) hindbrain ..
We have understood structure of brain ,now we are going to understand , protection of the brain ...brain is covered with a crinium bones ... crinium bones contain the 8 bones , ..brain contain the cell neuron , we know well about neuron we can say neuron baisc unite of nervous system and nervous system is basic unite of the brain , structure of neuron , axon is rod like part of neuron , cell body is center or nucleus of brain which control the neuron activity ,

This course provides a fascinating look into the world of neuroscience, with emphasis on the physics and biochemistry that drive cognition, learning, and behavior. I found discussions of the in vivo experimental techiniques to be especially interesting, and I came away with newfound hope for our development of safe and effective treatments for a number of pernicious conditions.
