This course provides an introduction to the field of cognitive neuroscience, the study of the neural substrates underlying cognitive functions. The course will examine the cognitive functions performed by all of the major brain areas, including memory, language, movement, emotion, and decision-making. Specific emphasis will be placed on understanding how different brain systems interact in order to support complex cognitive behaviours. The course is expected to provide a strong foundation in the converging fields of cognitive psychology and neuroscience; laboratories are expected to provide the research skills necessary to test the cognitive functions discussed during lectures.
Prerequisites: PSYC-1000; PSYC-2900
