Course Project: Part 2

As aforementioned, the course project will focus on the impact and relevance of behavioral neuroscience in the field of psychology as a whole.

What is the importance of sleep? How does the function of sleep impact our bodies? How does an understanding of these processes advance behavioral neuroscience? In other words, connect the function of sleep to behavioral neuroscience in this two page Paper. (Note: Behavioral neuroscience focuses on biological reasons for human behavior.)

Produce at least two pages that detail selected research to support your position. Be sure to include any charts, graphs, and/or images that you have created. Please do not merely insert media from the Internet; the media must be original.

Format your Paper using APA style. Use your own words and include citations and references as needed to avoid plagiarism. Finally, you must include a title page and a reference page, which will not count toward the two-page minimum requirement.
