This introductory course concerns the biological basis of the mind and how mechanisms in the brain shape human thought and behavior. For example, how does your brain enable you to vividly remember your first date, recognize a face, or take notes during class? By the end of the course you will have a working vocabulary of the terms, concepts, and theories of cognitive neuroscience. You will have increased appreciation for how our brains relate to everyday experience, and the skills to begin to evaluate primary research as a foundation for further study. PREREQ: Psych 100B.
