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 material.
