PSYCH 315. Cognitive Neuroscience. 3 Credits.
This course illustrates the biological bases of behavior with emphasis placed on the basics of neurobiology and the application of neuroscience to our understanding of cognitive processes such as cognitive control, decision-making, memory, language, and attention. Neuroscience refers to the science of the nervous system. Thus, Cognitive Neuroscience is the study of the neurological correlates of thought. However, it’s much more than that. This field is founded on the idea that all thought, indeed all behavior, originates in the nervous system. Cognitive Neuroscience seeks to understand the design and operating principles of the mind, as instantiated in the brain.
