PSYCHOLOGY 290 Section: 2
Spring Quarter 2011
|Prerequisites:||Graduate standing or consent of instructor. See instructor for CRN.|
The goal of the class is to review classic and current studies on attention in human and non-human primates. We will explore the question of what attention is, from a behavioral, neurophysiological and computational point of view. In the latter half of the class, we will also consider how mechanisms of attention interact with those of other functions such as working memory and decision-making. These latter topics will be partly determined by the interest of the class.
The format of the class will be weekly discussions of assigned readings.
The course requirements involve presentation of papers (exact number to be determined based on enrollment) and class participation.
