Seats open for first “Drugs on the Brain” course

Students, if you need to fill out your schedule in these last days before the Spring 2016 semester begins, you might think about PSY 315 – a new class at SCC.

Called “Psychopharmacology, ” the course explores the effects of drugs on the brain and behavior. The short-and long-term effects of both recreational and psychotherapeutic drugs are examined.  Students will learn how drugs alter different circuits in the brain and how these changes play a role in various aspects of cognition, psychological disorders, recreational drug use, drug abuse, learning, and brain disease.

There is one section of this course, and it is held at the SCC Davis Center.
