PSYC 3372 Affective Neuroscience (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Affect and cognition have traditionally been studied in isolation from one another, but these processes typically interact with each other. Affect can modulate our attention, guide our decision making, bias our perception, and influence our memories. Affective neuroscience utilizes the tools typically used to study cognitive neuroscience to better understand how affect interacts with other aspects of cognition. In addition to providing an overview of the methods typically used in affective neuroscience, this course will explore how we regulate our affect, how we perceive moral behavior, and how affect interacts with cognition differently in individuals in young and later adulthood.
