PS 575 Advanced Affective Neuroscience (Fall/Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: PS 285, PS 241, or PS 242
Affective and cognitive processes have traditionally been studied in isolation. Yet in most circumstances, there are interactions among these different types of processes. Affective neuroscience applies the tools traditionally used to study cognition (neuroimaging, neuropsychology) to better understand the neural bases of affective processes and the ways that affective processes interact with cognitive ones. Students will critically evaluate the design, methods, and interpretation of studies and will learn how the methods of cognitive neuroscience are best applied to examine affective processing.
