CORE COURSE OPTIONS

Affective Neuroscience: Emotions, Cognition, and Behavior
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
In this course, we aim to understand the interplay between human emotions, cognitive processes, and their neural networks. To achieve this, we use findings from the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience and the psychological study and cognition and emotion. Basic, complex, and social emotions are explored from the perspective of, e.g., the subjective experience of emotion, non-conscious processes, how emotions are interpreted, expressed or regulated. Affective systems, neural networks, and their relationship to cognitive processes such as attention, learning, memory, decision making are addressed. Where relevant, human brain imaging findings, pathological conditions, treatment and cultural perspectives are considered.
