Cognitive neuroscience is the study of higher cognitive functions in humans and its underlying neural bases. By definition, it is an integrative area of study drawing principally from cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, and linguistics. There are two broad directions which can be taken in this concentration—one is behavioral/experimental and the other is computational/modeling. In either case, the goal is to understand the nature of cognition from a neural perspective. Concentration Courses A total of 16 courses are required for the concentration. Each student is required to pass 9 courses designed to introduce students to the foundations (5), systems level and integrative aspects (4) which uniquely define cognitive neuroscience; two laboratory courses; four elective courses; and either a senior seminar course CLPS 1900 (COGS 1950) or an independent research course. The laboratory and elective courses should fit within a particular theme or category such as general cognition, perception, language, development, or computational/modeling. The design of the concentration and selection of courses should be made in consultation with the faculty advisor.
