INTERDEPARTMENTAL

Mini-Term: Neuroscience Applied: Designing and Communicating Theory and Research

Science is about theory, research, data and storytelling. This course focuses on Neuroscience and its related topics –Cognitive Science, Psychology, Biology, Computer Science, Philosophy of Mind and Anthropology– as they can be applied outside of the traditional laboratory. Through research projects on a topic of their choice, students will experience hands-on creative problem solving through the scientific process and create and write their own research papers and scientific visualizations. It is strongly recommended to take this course in conjunction with the course "Mind, Brain, and Beauty" or any other course in the brain, psychological and behavioral sciences. * Prerequisites: "Mind, Brain, and Beauty" or any other course in the brain, psychological and behavioral sciences

Mini-Term: Mind, Brain and Beauty

What underlies our perception of visual art and music? Do specific properties of objects, scenes, and musical events evoke consistent emotional responses? Does the perception of beauty lie in the eye of the beholder? What can the creative, artistic process tell us about the mind/brain? Examining such questions from cognitive and computer sciences, neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy, we will explore relevant research, theory and data in the visual and auditory domains as they pertain to art perception and cognition, creativity, and artificial intelligence.
