PSYC-234 Cognitive Neuroscience
Fall for 2005-2006
Cognitive neuroscientists study the relation between the mind and brain. Cognitive neuroscience is a new discipline, having been named only in the 1970s, when advances in the brain sciences and the psychological sciences converged to offer new ways of attacking enduring questions about how the brain enables the mind. This course considers how cognitive neuroscientists use modern techniques such as behavioral analyses of brain-damaged individuals, and brain imaging techniques (such as PET and MRI) to investigate the brain bases of perception, attention, memory, language, thought, motor control, development, adaptation, and consciousness. Prerequisite: PSYC-001. Fall.
