PSYC-234 Cognitive Neuroscience
Fall for 2016-2017
Spring for 2016-2017
How does the brain produce the mind? Answering this question is the goal of cognitive neuroscience, a rapidly growing discipline that represents the integration of cognitive psychology and neuroscience. The objective of this course is to introduce you to the methods and topics of cognitive neuroscience. We will consider evidence from functional brain imaging, neuro-genetics, studies of brain-damaged individuals, and studies of individuals with psychiatric conditions to arrive at an understanding of how complex cognitive functions such as perception, memory, language, emotion, and higher level thought are organized in the brain.
