Course Description

Why can two people look at the same dress yet perceive it to be two different colors? Why can the sight of dessert make us feel hungry even after a large meal? These types of questions pertaining to human behavior and cognition are investigated by psychology and neuroscience researchers. This course will introduce students to the neural and biological bases that support a variety of human behaviors and cognitive processes, including sensation, perception, learning, memory, emotion, hormones, drugs, and psychological disorders. All topics will be taught at an introductory-level and geared to psychology majors.
