In this course we will examine the cognitive neuroscience of attention and working memory. These cognitive systems are central for higher order thought. We will examine the mutability of attention and working memory as a function of training, stress, and mild mood states. We will discuss changes in attention during normal aging and disease states (depression, anxiety, ADHD). All of these topics will be covered from a cognitive neuroscience perspective using multiple methods (e.g., ERP, EEG, fMRI, single-unit recording, d', RT, accuracy, lesion studies). Counts as either a "Mind or "Brain"sector course.
