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