NEUR 350 - Cognitive Neuroscience

3 cr.


(Prerequisites: Grade of C or higher in PSYC 210 ; PSYC 231/NEUR 231 , or PSYC 234 )

This course explores the neural underpinnings of human cognition by introducing research on the relationship between mind and brain.  The course introduces and expands on neuroanatomy, research methods used to make inferences about brain bases of cognition (e.g., imaging, electronencephalography, lesion studies), and computational approaches to cognitive neuroscience.  Discussions and activities focus on the brain bases of cognitive operations in perception, attention, memory, language, executive control, social cognition, reasoning, and decision making.

(Credits cannot be earned for NEUR 350 and PSYC 350 .)
