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 both a field and laboratory context in
representative marine invertebrates and lower vertebrates. The laboratory work will emphasize techniques of
quantification of behavior by observation, stop-frame video analysis and electrophysiological techniques. A term
paper will involve a review of the behavior and neural mechanisms of a mairine animal model system.
