Neuroscience courses for engineering students
NEU 593: Magnetic resonance imaging - Ray Lee
This course serves as an introduction to nuclear magnetic resonance signal generation and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) principles. Some common imaging techniques and their popular applications are fully described. The additional lab works are designed to provide opportunities to practice pulsesequence design and image reconstruction skills. The overall goal is to present an overview on state of the art MRI.
PSY 330: Introduction to Connectionist Models – Ken Norman
A fundamental goal of cognitive neuroscience is to understand how psychological functions such as attention, memory, language, and decision making arise from computations performed by assemblies of neurons in the brain. This course will provide an introduction to the use of connectionist models (also known as neural network or parallel distributed processing models) as a tool for exploring how psychological functions are implemented in the brain, and how they go awry in patients with brain damage.
