Why We Do the Things We Do: Advanced Topics in Neuroscience


Course description

In this course, you will learn about high level neural processes, such as learning, decision-making, emotion, love, and even why we are sometimes “evil”. This course is grounded in the latest neuroscience research, so you can learn how complex behaviours stem from the firing of neurons within the brain. We will discuss rare neural dysfunctions—such as the Capgras delusion and anosognosia—and you will get a chance to observe a functional neuroimaging laboratory and take part in a neuroimaging experiment. We will also look at research methodologies and current issues in neuroscience. Although this course builds on material taught in An Introduction to Neuroscience, last offered in the Fall 2016 term, it is not necessary to have any previous experience to enjoy this course.
