Course Description: This course examines workings of the individual from a psychological perspective. It includes detail of the neural components constituting the brain, the operation of the sensory systems underlying interaction with the external environment, and the cognitive processes that construct the internal world experienced by the individual. The course explores the nature of this internal world and the importance of its relationship to the external world. The course is comprised of four sections. The section on behavioral neuroscience examines how biology underlies and influences behavior. Specific areas are selected from basic brain and nervous system structure and function; behavior genetics; how vision, hearing, touch, and pain are processed; the roles of sleep and dreams; and biological theories of mental illness and neurological disease. The section on perception introduces sensation and perception, with an emphasis on the visual system as a model perceptual system. Specific topics are selected from examination of the functional properties of sensory systems. The learning and cognition section introduces the experimental study of higher cognitive processes, such as attention, recognition, memory, learning, language, and reasoning. The final section is an introduction to research design and descriptive statistics taught in the laboratory program, and covers methods for collecting and describing data.
