COGS 11.02 Representation and the Brain

Neuroimaging, and with it cognitive neuroscience, is undergoing a conceptual revolution. This course uses philosophical and neuroscientific approaches to explore the changes in our conceptions of mental and neural representation that are prompted by recent advances in brain imaging that use multivariate approaches to analyzing brain imaging data. These new methods radically change the way we conceive of the nature of mental representation. Using a combination of philosophical texts, scientific review papers, and primary research papers, we try to re-conceptualize how the brain represents the world.

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.
