PSYC 4477 Research Practicum in Cognitive Neuroscience (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course will provide an introduction to experimental methods used to understand how cognitive processes are implemented in the human brain. Topics will include research ethics, experimental design, appropriate use of statistical analysis, and methods for measuring and perturbing brain function. We will read and discuss research articles highlighting recent methodological advances and debates in psychology and neuroscience. In a series of hands-on projects, students will design and implement a cognitive neuroscience-motivated behavioral experiment, as well as interact with existing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) datasets.
