Presented concurrently with the neuroscience course, behavioral science presents a clinically-oriented overview of psychopathology, the neurophysiologic basis of human behavior, the human life cycle (incorporating prenatal development through senescence), sociocultural determinants of behavior, human sexual behavior, doctor-patient relationships, and healthcare delivery.
