Psyc 600-303 meets for the entire semester and receives .5 c.u.s
Introduction to Cognitive Neuroscience. This course will review what has been learned about the neural mechanisms underlying intelligent behavior in humans and animals. The course will be organized by the traditional topic areas of cognitive science, specifically: Vision (early vision through object recognition), attention, learning and memory, motor control, planning and problem-solving, and language. Within each topic we will attempt to integrate the results of the different neuroscience approaches to each topic, including the study of human neurological patients, lesion studies in animals, single unit recordings, neural network modeling, and functional imaging techniques. Fulfills the "Brain" requirement.
