PSYC 445 - Cognitive Neuroscience

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: PSYC 100 and PSYC 242 and PSYC 337; or consent of instructor
See Addenda  for changes to this course effective Spring 2020.

This course focuses on the study of the neural processes underlying human cognition and perception. How does the brain’s neural organization and functional connectivity give rise to human cognitive and perceptual abilities, such as sensory perception, learning, attentional regulation, memory, language, music and emotions? This question is addressed in the context of cognitive neuroscience research, which makes use of varied methodologies, including single cell recordings, animal models, brain imaging techniques and patient studies. Offered annually. (Formerly PSYC 345)
