Drugs and the Brain

I mentioned this on the Twitter feed, but I am TAing for Drugs and the Brain next semester. Its not quite what I wanted, but anything is better then hearing about babies for an entire semester.

Not that I hate babies or anything... but I really don't understand why anyone would teach Freud and ignore neurobiology in the year 2008. Also... we continue to develop after the age of 25. Gerontology is a pretty important field of research which we have not covered in Developmental Psych. Apparently learning about freudian intepretations of fairy tales is more important.

Bring on the Neuropharmacology! Its all cellular and molecular, but at least its within my area.
