COG 266 - Brains, Minds and Consciousness




This course is an introduction to neuroanatomy, neurology, evolution, genetics, brain imaging techniques, brain disorders, psychoactive substances, and the phenomenon of consciousness. All topics are contextualized within the study of the mind, assuring both a measure of course coherence and the cognitive science perspective. This course is expressly tailored to the needs of cognitive science students, but it will surely be of interest to students of linguistics, psychology, philosophy, biology and education as well.

Offered: Fall, Spring
Credit: 3
