PSYCH 6200 - Advanced Neurobiology Learning and Memory

Spring. (Offered alternate years) 3 credits.

Co-meets with PSYCH 4200 .

D. Smith.

This seminar will examine the neural mediation of learning and memory processes, broadly defined to include simple and complex forms of learning in humans and animals. After a historical overview, students will discuss cutting-edge literature on the brain mechanisms of learning and memory. Topics will be decided upon by the participants and may include the cellular mechanisms of plasticity (e.g., LTP), neural circuits involved in Pavlovian conditioning and instrumental learning, spatial memory, emotional memory, working memory, and episodic and semantic memory.
