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 uses a problem-based learning approach
that stresses realistic problems as a technique to organize the
course materials.
