New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2019

PSYC 50.13 Hemispheric Differences in the Human Brain

The goal of this course is to explore differences between the right and left hemispheres of the human brain. We will examine evidence from a variety of sources, including neuroanatomical studies, neuroimaging experiments, animal models, studies involving patients with unilateral brain lesions, and split-brain research, to characterize the nature of the structural and functional differences between the two hemispheres. We will also study the development of laterality (ontogenetic and phylogenetic) to better understand why the two hemispheres of the human brain are specialized for different functions.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
