NSCI0301A-S13

Cross-Listed As:
PSYC0301A-S13

CRN: 21255

Physiological Psychology
Please register via PSYC 0301A

Physiological Psychology
This course concerns the biological basis of human behavior. The course will consider the neurochemical, neuroanatomical, and neurophysiological bases of processes such as language, sensation, emotion, aggression, sleep, learning, and memory. In the laboratory the student will conduct experiments using standard (surgical, anatomical, biochemical, behavioral) techniques to investigate central nervous system function. (PSYC 0105 or any biology course; not open to first-year students; open to psychology and neuroscience majors; others by waiver) 3 hrs. lect./3 hrs. lab.

PSYC0305A-S13

CRN: 21251

Cognitive Psychology
Please register via PSYC 0305A

Cognitive Psychology
Questions about the nature of the mind, thinking, and knowledge have a long and rich history in the field of psychology. This course will examine the theoretical perspectives and empirically documented phenomena that inform our current understanding of cognition. Lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and experiments will form the basis for our explorations of cognition in this class. Topics to be considered include attention, perception, memory, knowledge, problem solving, and decision making. (PSYC 0105; PSYC 0201 or MATH 0116 or ECON 0previously or concurrently; PSYC 0202 recommended; not open to first-year students; open to psychology and neuroscience majors; others by waiver) 3 hrs. lect./1.5 hrs. lab.

CRN: 22453

Concepts: The Stuff of Thought
Please register via PSYC 0419A

Concepts: The Stuff of Thought
Concepts allow us to think--they organize and provide meaning to our perceptions, memories, knowledge, and social interactions. In this seminar we will employ a multidisciplinary approach to explore how concepts are represented psychologically and biologically, how they develop over time, and how they allow us to understand and interact with the physical and social world around us. While the majority of course material will come from cognitive psychology, topics will be taken from philosophy, neuroscience, computer science, developmental psychology, and social psychology. (PSYC 0105; open to junior and senior psychology and neuroscience majors only) 3 hrs. sem.
