Program Description:
Neuroscience 
Neuroscience is one of the most exciting and fastest growing scientific fields. It spans studies of dysfunctional brain circuits, neurobiological perspectives on creativity, and asks: What is consciousness?

Whether you wish to approach neuroscience from the cognitive, behavioral, cellular, molecular, neurobiological, or psychological perspective, we have a Core Course for you.

CORE COURSE OPTIONS 

Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness + Lab 
Fall/Spring, 6 Credits (3-Credit Course + 3-Credit Lab) 
Despite decades of scientific research and centuries of philosophical analysis, consciousness remains one of the greatest scientific challenges of our time. What is consciousness and which brain mechanisms shape the unique sense of self, implicit in all our thoughts and perceptions? How can we transform the subjectivity of human experience to an objective topic of research? Through the lenses of behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, we explore both conceptual and methodological perspectives of relevance to the study of human consciousness. We critically analyze the obstacles and challenges inherent to the study of consciousness.
