Cognitive Neuroscience: Lecture 5- Neural Representation
1. List the primary neuronatomical structures involved in motor actions.
Motor pathways include the brain, which innervates the spinal cord via the pyramidal and
Cognitive Neuroscience: Lecture 4- Somatosensation and the Body Schema
1. How do we measure the location and size of the receptive fields of sensory receptors and
other neurons in the somatosensory system?
Sensory receptors come in diff
Cognitive Neuroscience: Lecture 6- Consciousness
1. What is anesthesia awareness? What is a vegetative state? How would a better
understanding of consciousness and its neural bases help with these problems?
Anesthesia awareness is when
Cognitive Neuroscience: Lecture 3- Neural Plasticity
1. What are some of the physical changes that can take place in the brain as a result of
As a result of learning, growth (or pruning) of axons or dendrites can occur. On a m
Cognitive Neuroscience: Lecture 2- Remembering and Forgetting: Neural Bases
1. What are the neural sites of sensory memory?
Primary sensory areas in the neocortex serve as the neural sites of sensory memory (visual,
echoic, and haptic).
Cognitive Neuroscience: Lecture 1- Remembering and Forgetting
1. What is the relationship between learning and memory?
Learning is the process of acquiring new information. Memory refers to the persistence of
learning in a state that ca
