  • Oliva, Aude (2005-12)
    9.63 teaches principles of experimental methods in human perception and cognition, including design and statistical analysis. The course combines lectures and hands-on experimental exercises and requires an independent ...
  • Schulz, Laura (2005-12)
    This course is an introduction to cognitive development focusing on children's understanding of objects, agents, and causality. Students develop a critical understanding of experimental design and how developmental research ...
  • Chorover, Stephan L.; Ristic, Jovan (2005-06)
    In this course we learn social psychology both theoretically and practically. We examine interpersonal and group dynamics, and explore how the thoughts, feelings and actions of individuals are influenced by (and influence) ...
  • Chorover, Stephan L.; Ristic, Jovan (2005-06)
    Affect is to cognition and behavior as feeling is to thinking and acting or as values are to beliefs and practices. Subject considers these relations, both at the psychological level of organization and in terms of their ...
  • Schneider, Gerald (2005-06)
    This course covers major CNS structures with emphasis on systems being used as models for experimental studies of development and plasticity. Topics include basic patterns of connections in CNS, embryogenesis, PNS anatomy ...
  • Kanwisher, Nancy (2004-12)
    Covers the basics of fMRI, the strengths and limitations of fMRI compared to other techniques, and the design and analysis of fMRI experiments, focusing primarily on experiments on high-level vision. Upon completion, ...
  • Bear, Mark F.; Seung, H. Sebastian (2004-12)
    Relation of structure and function at various levels of neuronal integration. Topics include: functional neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, sensory and motor systems, centrally programmed behavior, sensory systems, sleep ...
  • Schiller, Peter H.; Brown, Merritt Christian (2004-12)
    Examines the neural bases of visual and auditory processing for perception and sensorimotor control. Focuses on physiological and anatomical studies of the mammalian nervous system as well as behavioral studies of animals ...
  • Corkin, Suzanne (2004-06)
    Course topics explore the relations between neural systems and cognition, emphasizing attention, vision, language, motor control, and memory. An introduction to basic neuroanatomy, functional imaging techniques, and ...
  • Adelson, Edward H. (2004-06)
    How do the senses work? How do physical stimuli get transformed into signals in the nervous system? How does the brain use those signals to determine what's out there in the world? All the senses are discussed; vision is ...
  • Wurtman, Richard J., 1936- (2003-12)
    Considers the process of neurotransmission, especially chemicals used in the brain and elsewhere to carry signals from nerve terminals to the structures they innervate. Focuses on monoamine transmitters (acetylcholine; ...
  • Corkin, Suzanne; Wilson, Matthew (2003-12)
    Topics in mammalian learning and memory including cellular mechanisms of neural plasticity, electrophysiology, and behavior. Emphasis on human and animal models of hippocampal mechanisms and function. Lectures and discussion ...
  • Corkin, Suzanne; Ingram, Vernon M. (2003-06)
    Lectures and discussions explore the clinical, behavioral, and molecular aspects of brain aging processes in humans. Topics include: loss of memory and other cognitive abilitites in normal aging; neurodegenerative conditions ...
  • Constantine-Paton, Martha, 1947-; Sheng, Morgan Hwa-Tze; Garrity, Paul A. (2003-06)
    Subject covers all major areas of cellular and molecular neurobiology including excitable cells and membranes, ion channels and receptors, synaptic transmission, cell type determination, axon guidance and targeting, neuronal ...
  • Schiller, Peter H. (2003-06)
    The organization of the mammalian visual system and the manner in which shape, color, texture, motion, and depth are processed. Alternate years.
  • Nedivi, Elly (2003-06)
    Considers molecular control of neural specification, formation of neuronal connections, construction of neural systems, and the contributions of experience to shaping brain structure and function. Topics include: neural ...
  • Gibson, Edward Albert Fletcher (2002-12)
    Seminar in real-time language comprehension. Models of sentence and discourse comprehension from the linguistic, psychology, and artificial intelligence literature, including symbolic and connectionist models. Ambiguity ...
  • Gibson, Edward Albert Fletcher (2002-12)
    Central topics in language processing. The structure of language. Sentence processing. Discourse processing. Morphological processing. The storage and access of words in the mental dictionary. Speech processing. The ...
  • Wolfe, Jeremy M. (2002-12)
    This course surveys questions about human behavior and mental life ranging from how you see to why you fall in love. The great controversies: nature and nurture, free will, consciousness, human differences, self and society. ...
  • Boroditsky, Lera; Carey, Susan; Spelke, Elizabeth S. (2002-12)
    Subject examines the many interrelationships between language and thought. Do people who speak different languages think differently? Does learning new languages change the way you think? Do polyglots think differently in ...
