Fall 2017 COGS Seminar Courses

COGS 260 (Section 913369) : Controversies and Conundrums in Developmental Science | Professor Gedeon Deák

This seminar will evaluate some pervasive questions and debates in the study of human development. The goal is to familiarize graduate students with long-standing and far-reaching theoretical problems and analyze those problems from a modern interdisciplinary perspective. For each question we'll review & evaluate high-impact research, drawing from work in developmental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, education, psychiatry, & primatology. We'll also touch on social and historical forces that have shaped the study of human development.

COGS 200 (Section 913354) : Faculty Research Seminar | Professor Gary Cottrell

Cognitive Science 200 is an interdisciplinary seminar of changing topics, and is used as a mechanism for Ph.D. students in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program and in the Cognitive Science Department to achieve breadth.  This quarter, we will be having a pro-seminar of UCSD faculty in Cognitive Science and related deparments.  We have invited junior faculty to share their research with the campus community and the public. Please join us for this variegated tour of UCSD Cognitive Science.
