Topic: Neural Basis of Sensation, Perception and Cognition. The first
part of this course provides a strong grounding in the basic
neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of the visual system. Correlations
will be made between current biological models of human visual
processing and the underlying 'wetware' that supports such functions.
The goal of the course is to integrate neural and cognitive approaches
to the problem of vision. The second half of the course will be
devoted to the neurological data relevant to complex visual tasks such
as object and face recognition, visual search and perception/action.
The course is appropriate for graduate students (and perhaps strong
undergraduates) in psychology, neural science, optometry, computer
science, and other cognitive science discipline. Performance will be
based on in-class discussion and a final project.
