Neuroethology attempts to explain simple behavior in terms of the properties and connections of central neural
networks. The present course will explore such mechanisms in several representative marine invertebrates and lower
vertebrates. A term paper will involve a synthesis of the mechanisms of control of a complex behavioral act from the
primary research literature
