Topics course. How does experience get "under the skin" to influence health, physiology and behavior? This seminar explores how environmental factors become biologically encoded across the life-course. Topics include prenatal origins of adult disorders, endocrine disruption and behavior, and aspects of the physical and social environments that impact outcomes from depression to longevity. We introduce epigenetics and critically examine how epigenetic mechanisms and others reflect and contribute to experience. Prerequisites: a 200-level course in biopsychology or neuroscience, and an introductory biology course, or permission of the instructor.
