Course Description: This course examines a range of phenomena and principles in learning and perception and their underlying neural substrates. It emphasizes instrumental conditioning and the principle of reinforcement, ranging from applications of this principle to its neural substrates. Students analyze aversive-based learning, such as punishment and avoidance, and anxiety, together with related neurochemical mechanisms and the effects of various psychopharmacological agents on these processes. A number of perceptual phenomena is explored, including vision and hearing, recognition of tastes and odors, touch, and pain. Through a series of practical classes and demonstrations, students gain hands-on experience of how some of these principles and phenomena may be studied experimentally and applied to behavioral change.
