Attention encompasses several cognitive functions including, but not limited to, the ability to select relevant from irrelevant stimuli, to maintain goal-directed behavior over time, and to process multiple streams of information at once. This course explores how the normal brain "attends", and the consequences of dysfunction in neurochemical systems hypothesized to mediate these abilities including dementia, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and schizophrenia.

Topic: How We Think Memory Works in the Brain

You have probably heard of the famous clinical case of H. M. and his loss of memory. Have you wondered why he was unable to remember some things?  In this class we will discuss the areas of the brain in mammals that contribute towards spatial cognition and memory. In particular, the hippocampal formation is part of a pathway that is highly involved in these processes. We will examine how cellular and synaptic changes in the hippocampal complex are involved in the formation and retrieval of new memories and how this area communicates with other parts of the cortex. We will examine how brain rhythms like theta contribute to this process.  We will also examine interesting cells that appear to allow us to generate a cognitive map of our environment. Much of our time will be spent discussing articles that focus on non-human animals, but we will also be discussing clinical research with people.  We will also consider the role of the hippocampal formation more broadly in conditioning/learning, timing, planning, and episodic memory.

Title: Fundamentals of Cognitive Science 

 

Brief description: This course will emphasize interdisciplinary approaches to the study of intelligent systems, both natural and artificial. Cognitive science synthesizes research from cognitive psychology, computer science, neuroscience, linguistics, and philosophy. The first half of the course will focus on the theoretical and historical foundations of cognitive science. Our main question would be: What is the best way to scientifically study the mind? This will require us to delve into  relevant discussions in philosophy of mind. Since cognitive science considers the mind as a biological information processing system, we will also discuss the concept of computing, and how it relates to the human brain. In the second half of the semester, we will be focusing on examples of more recent theories and developments in specific subfields of cognitive science and psychology.
