Course Description: This course offers a study of two main research areas in cognitive neuroscience: perception and higher cognition. In order to understand and interact with our environment, the brain needs to process large amounts of sensory information. Higher cognitive functions use sensory information to become aware of physical and social circumstances, to store and access information, and to have thoughts and feelings. These functions underpin all aspects of human behavior. The course explores the neurobiological aspects of human behavior by discussing topics including neurological patients, non-invasive brain imaging techniques, and animal models where the underlying neurobiology is better understood than in humans. Students give a presentation on a specific topic; research, design, conduct, analyze, and report on a simple experiment; and complete midterm and final exams. The course requires that students have completed the UCU course Cognitive Neuroscience I or an equivalent as a prerequisite.
