Q301 | 1067 | Tom BUsey


This course asks a deceptively simple question: how do the neurons and
areas of the brain work together to accomplish the vast range of human
behaviors? To answer this question, we first cover the basics of brain
neuroscience and then attempt to link these with a variety of human
capacities studied by cognitive psychologists.  We will look at areas
such as: perception, attention, memory, learning through synaptic
plasticity, language, consciousness and intelligence.  The course
relies upon a problem-based learning approach that stresses realistic
problems as a technique to organize the course materials.
