The purpose of this course is to shed light on the neural bases of cognition by introducing core concepts in Cognitive Neuroscience. We begin with an investigation of neural structure and function, including an introduction to key methods used in Cognitive Neuroscience. We will cover major topics including sensation and perception, attention, learning and memory, decision making, social and emotional behavior, as well as how these cognitive abilities arise during development. We will also discuss how these concepts apply to our everyday lives, including addiction, multitasking abilities, and neurolaw practices.
