PSYC 86.01 Selective Developmental Deficits

Cognitive neuropsychology relies on selective deficits to shed light on the organization of the brain.  In the past, nearly all selective deficits reported in the neuropsychological literature involved brain-damaged patients who lost particular abilities, but many selective deficits due to failures of development have been identified in recent years.  These include deficits affecting computations concerned with color, faces, objects, spatial abilities, music, language, reading, number, and memory.  This course will discuss the theoretical basis of selective deficits, examine the cognitive and neural profiles of particular selective developmental deficits, and consider the more general implications of selective developmental deficits and the research opportunities they present.

Prerequisite

Permission through the department website

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.
