    Course description: This course will review advanced topics in the neural basis of episodic memory.  Particular emphasis will be placed on classic and recent articles delineating how episodic memories are stored and processed in the human and rodent brain.  Methods for observing these phenomena, such as fMRI and single unit recording, and human and rat behavioral analysis methods, will be carefully considered.  The course is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students wishing to enrich their knowledge in this subfield.  Students will be expected to present at least one journal article critically. Suggested previous coursework: Psy 1 (Intro to Psychology), Psy 100 (Cognitive Psychology), Psy 41 (Research Methods), Psy 103 (Statistics), and Psy 135 (Cognitive Neuroscience) or permission of instructor.
