AS.050.375 - Probabilistic Models of the Visual Cortex

The course gives an introduction to computational models of the mammalian visual cortex. It covers topics in low-, mid-, and high-level vision. It briefly discusses the relevant evidence from anatomy, electrophysiology, imaging (e.g., fMRI), and psychophysics. It concentrates on mathematical modeling of these phenomena taking into account recent progress in probabilistic models of computer vision and developments in machine learning, such as deep networks.

Introductory course dealing with theory, methods, and current research topics in the study of language as a component of the mind. What it is to "know" a language: components of linguistic knowledge (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) and the course of language acquisition. How linguistic knowledge is put to use: language and the brain and linguistic processing in various domains. Cross-listed with Neuroscience and Psychology.

AS.050.358 - Language & Thought

Have you ever wondered about the relationships between language and thought? Philosophers, linguists, psychologists, evolutionary theorists and cognitive scientists have too and this course will survey the current thinking on this matter. Classical papers such as those by Whorf and Sapir, more recent philosophical papers by people such as Fodor and Dennett, and recent empirical work by linguists and psycholingists on the relationship between language and thinking in development and in adults will be covered. Discussions will focus on the theoretically possible relationships between language and thought and the empirical data that speak to these. Juniors and seniors only. Freshmen and sophomores by permission of instructor only.

AS.200.101 - Introduction to Psychology

Do we all see colors the same way? How did so many 'good' people support the Nazi party? Do crossword puzzles really stave off Alzheimer's Disease? This course tries to answer these questions and many others, providing a comprehensive overview of the scientific study of the mind. We'll explore topics such as perception, language, memory, decision-making, creativity, love, sex, art, politics, religion, dreams, drugs, brain damage and mental illness, grappling with deep and long-standing controversies along the way: differences between the sexes, the relationship between mind and brain, causes and consequences of racism, human uniqueness (or not) within the animal kingdom, nature vs. nurture, good and evil, consciousness. Appropriate for anyone wanting to know who and what we are as human beings (or who noticed that psychology is now on the MCAT).

The course is strongly theoretically oriented, with emphasis on issues of nature, and development psychology as well as relevant empirical evidence. The principle focus will be early development, i.e., from conception through middle childhood. The course is organized topically, covering biological and prenatal development, perceptual and cognitive development, the nature and development of intelligence, and language learning. Recommended Background: AS.050.105 OR AS.050.203 OR AS.080.203 OR AS.050.101 OR AS.200.110.

AS.080.348 - Science of Learning

Can what we know about the brain guide how we learn or teach in our schools? This seminar course is designed to address this question. In this course we will focus on the science of what we know about learning and teaching (and not the politics) to see if we can actually use the research to “optimize learning in society”. As we read the literature, we will look at some of the “neuromyths” that have been propagated thus far and discuss how to avoid creating new neuromyths by effectively communicating the research.

AS.200.329 - Real World Human Data: Analysis & Visualization

Experiments in human cognition typically involve careful manipulation and control of variables in order to answer specific questions about the mind or brain. However, digital devices now provide an ocean of incidental human data: information collected continuously about our behavior and physiological states as we go about our lives. These incidental datasets are often large and noisy, and pose different analysis and visualization challenges from more traditional manipulated experiments. In this course students will learn computational tools and qualitative approaches for exploring, visualizing and interpreting large human data. The course emphasizes computer-based analysis of open-source human behavioral and neuroimaging datasets. Analyses will be conducted in MATLAB. Instructor will grant approval as long as you have previous programming experience (roughly equivalent to material covered in an introductory-level programming course). Self-taught or real-world experience can be applicable in lieu of previous formal classroom instruction.

AS.200.363 - Mind, Brain & Experience

How do nature and nurture shape the human mind? How does experience contribute to the development of visual perception, language and social reasoning? This course explores insights into these age-old questions from neuroscience and psychology. Studies of infant behavior reveal rich knowledge about objects and people in the first months of life. At the same time, experience has profound effects on behavior and neurobiology. For example, temporary absence of vision (i.e. blindness) during development permanently alters visual perception and the visual cortex. Key evidence also comes from studies of naturally occurring variation in human experience (e.g. blindness, deafness, socioeconomic and cultural differences). We will discuss what such studies of cognitive and neural function tell us about the origins of human cognition. This is a writing intensive course with weekly lectures and seminar style discussion of primary sources. Students will be required to write weekly responses to readings and a term paper.

AS.200.324 - Choosing the 'champion' animal in neuroscience research

This course will explore some of the most important breakthroughs in the field of neuroscience and reveal the sometimes underestimated animals who have been at the core of these discoveries. Understanding how diverse animal models can serve to answer different questions in neuroscience is key for the advancement of the field. Choosing the “champion animal” is a phrase often used in neuroethology to describe the idea of finding the best model to investigate the scientific question at hand. Invertebrates have been at the core of neuroscience research for the better part of the last century. Since the discovery of the squid giant axon and subsequent description of axon function and action potentials, invertebrates have been pioneering at every corner of neurobiological research. To mention some, the first description of central pattern generators was discovered in the isolated nervous system of the locust, the first described molecular underpinnings of learning and memory were described in the sea slug Aplysia californica and the foundation of the field of connectomics started with the complete wiring diagram of the nervous system of Caenorhabditis elegans. Nowadays, invertebrates remain key models to study the brain; Drosophila flies and new techniques in genetics have given way to important discoveries of brain development and neuronal and gene function that have helped us understand further how these mechanisms work in other species, including humans. Enrollment limited to Majors/Minors in Biology, Behavioral Biology, Cognitive Science, Medicine science & the Humanities, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Neuroscience, Biophysics, Natural Sciences, Psychology.
