NEU338 - Animal Learning and Decision Making: Psychological, Computational and Neural Perspectives
A seminar aiming to provide a modern, integrative view of classic animal learning phenomena from experimental psychology, through the lens of contemporary learning theory, computational models of learning and decision making, and current neuroscientific knowledge.
NEU259 - Introduction to Cognitive Neuroscience
An introduction to cognitive brain functions, including higher perceptual functions, attention and selective perception, systems for short- and long-term memory, language, cerebral lateralization, motor control, executive functions of the frontal lobe, cognitive development and plasticity.
