Seminar in Cognitive Neuroscience
PSYC 332
Fall 2020
Section: 01  

This seminar is an in-depth analysis of the ways that scientists study the neural basis of cognition in humans. Topics to be covered include the representation of visual categories, the neural influence of attention, episodic memory, theories of spatial cognition, and decision-making. Through reading and discussion of primary research articles, we will evaluate the methods and theoretical debates in each domain, while recognizing and integrating common themes that link across the field. Students will also learn how to work with simple computer models and simulations (using Python), in order to gain a strong foundation in the computational principles that underlie recent advances in the field of cognitive neuroscience.
