All neuroscience is a multidisciplinary enterprise that draws on findings from diverse fields, ranging from molecular genetics to comparative psychology. Comparative Neurology involves scrutinizing brain anatomy and physiology, relating brain structure to function, and linking each of these to behavior and ecology. In this course, we will explore how the human brain has emerged, discover some rules of how brains generally evolve (and develop some of our own), and determine what factors have guided the phylogenetic development of this complex structure. Throughout the course, laboratory projects and problem sets will support our classroom discussions. Prerequisite: C- or better in NSCI 301 or permission of the instructor.

Cognitive neuroscience is the study of “how the brain enables the mind.” The purpose of this course is for you to develop an advanced understanding of the biological basis of mental activity. We will examine the biological roots of various mental phenomena including perception, attention, learning, memory, language, emotion and consciousness. In particular, we will focus on the roles of plasticity and evolutionary pressure in shaping the mind, and on the treatment of cognitive neuroscience in popular media. Prerequisite: C- or better in NSCI 301 or permission of the instructor.
