In this paper we will examine cognitive behaviour and its biological bases. Topics will include sensation and perception, learning and memory, executive function, and motor control. We will consider these abilities and their underlying brain mechanisms across the developmental spectrum (from infancy to advanced aging), as well as in populations with neurological conditions.
Internal assessment contributes 40% to the final grade for PSYC 211. Full details of the PSYC 211 requirements are contained in the Manual.
