PSYC-369 Brain/Conscious Experience
Offered academic year 2007-2008
The course is dedicated to filling the "gap" between psychological processes and brain functions. Data are organized within a theoretical frame that recognizes different processing levels reaching from neural membranes, through neural circuits and systems, to behavioral and experiential scales of investigation. Observations and results of experiments in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropsychology and cognitive science form the database, simulations with massively parallel distributed processing programs provide techniques and theoretical frames. The 200-year historical perspective during which the "gap filling" has taken place provides a fascinating account that provides guidelines for future inquiry. Pre-requisite: PSYC-001. Fall.
