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, motor control, and executive
function.  The course uses a problem-based learning approach that
stresses realistic problems as a technique to organize the course
materials.
