Comments: Cognitive neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field - drawingfrom chemistry, biology, medicine, neuroscience, psychology, andphilosophy - that explores the relationship between the mind andthe brain. Like the field of cognitive neuroscience, the scopeof this course is broad, focusing on brain mechanisms for suchdiverse processes as sensation and perception, attention,memory, emotion, language, and even consciousness. Along withthe text, students read primary journal articles on case studiesfrom the clinical literature of patients with localized braindamage and reports from the experimental and neuroimagingliterature on the effects of invasive and noninvasivemanipulations in normal subjects. Mind-brain relationships areconsidered in the context of cognitive theories, evolutionarycomparisons, and human development. Prerequisite: PSYC 253
