PSY 3050 - Cognitive Neuroscience

3 cr. 3 hrs. Day course offered once a year.

This course in Cognitive Neuroscience serves to cultivate an appreciation of the relationships between mind, brain and behavior.  We will examine how phenomena such as cognition, language, emotion, behavior and consciousness are emergent properties grounded in brain function.  Topics will include: research methods used by cognitive neuroscientists (e.g. EEG and fMRI); how brain states relates to cognitive and perceptual processes; the neurological bases of learning and memory; and how brain development relates to cognitive development.  A principal goal of Cognitive Neuroscience is to prepare students to think critically about issues of brain, mind, and social relations from a multidisciplinary approach that involves findings from psychology, linguistics, computer science, medicine, and neuroscience.

Prerequisite(s):   and PSY 2030  or BIOL 1200   or BIOL 1300 .
