Emotion and the Embodied Mind

This course introduces the scientific study of emotions, including where they come from and how they shape our perception of the world around us. We will discuss the ways in which action and thought are grounded in ongoing bodily needs and activity, how the mind makes meaning from incoming sensory input from the external world and the internal milieu, and how emotions both emerge from and shape these processes. 
Prereq: Psyc 402; 502; or permission. WI
