Course Course Information Instructor
Minds & Brains
MW 11:00-13:50 in CSB 180  
Description: How damaged and normal brains influence the way humans solve problems, remember or forget, pay attention to things; how they affect our emotions, and the way we use language in daily life.
Intro. to Research Methods
MW 14:00-16:50 in WLH 2208  
Neurobiology of Cognition
TR 11:00-13:50 in HSS 2152  
Description: Introduction to the organization and functions of the nervous system. Topics include molecular, cellular, developmental, systems, and behavioral neurobiology. Specifically, structure and function of neurons, peripheral and central nervous systems, sensory, motor, and control systems, learning and memory mechanisms. (Students may not receive credit for both Biology 12 and Cognitive Science 17. This course fulfills general-education requirements for Marshall and Roosevelt Colleges as well as Warren by petition.)
Sensation and Perception
Description: An introduction to the experimental study of cognition with a focus on sensation and perception. Prerequisites: Cognitive Science 1.
Learning, Memory and Attention
MTWR 14:00-15:20 in CENTR 207  
Description: A survey of the experimental study of learning, memory, and attention. Topics include conditioning, automaticity, divided attention, memory systems, and the nature of mental representation. Prerequisites: Cognitive Science 1. Recommended: Cognitive Science 101A.
MTWR 09:30-10:50 in HSS 2154  
Description: An introduction to structure of natural language, and to the cognitive processes that underline its acquisition, comprehension, and production. This course covers findings from linguistics, computer science, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience to provide an integrated perspective on human language abilities. Prerequisites: Cognitive Science 1 and 14A.
Neuroanatomy and Physiology
TR 11:00-13:50 in PETER 104  
COGS 154
Comm Disorders/Children&Adults
TR 14:00-16:50 in PETER 103  
Description: Neural bases of language use in normal adults, and neural bases of language and communication development in normal children. Evidence on the language and communication deficits in adults (especially aphasia and dementia) and children (specific language impairment, focal brain injury, retardation, and autism). Prerequisites: upper-division standing.

Music and the Mind
Mirror Neuron System
COGS 172
Brain Disorders and Cognition
Description: A review of the patterns of impaired and intact cognitive abilities present in brain-damaged patients in terms of damage to one or more components of a model of normal cognitive functioning. (Cognitive science majors may not receive elective credit for both Psychology 139 and Cognitive Science 172.) Prerequisites: Cognitive Science 107A.
