PS 574 Neuroscience of Sensation and Perception (Fall/Spring: 3)

Our ability to survive as we make our way through the world requires the quick and accurate transformation of a vast array of sensory inputs into a cohesive picture of the environment. Drawing upon classic work and recent advances, this seminar will explore the critical neural steps that underlie this process, addressing topics in vision, audition, and somatosensation, among others. We will place a particular emphasis upon drawing parallels among sensory modalities and upon integrating information from a wide range of techniques, from single-unit electrophysiology to fMRI.
