    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to all Psychology majors because it gives you a biological basis for everything we're learning in our classes. Although Neuroscience is often seen as too parallel to psychology to take a separate class for it- its important to know that there is some physiological basis of the theories we learn about. Cognitive Neuroscience gave me really solid grasp on many of the theories I was learning in the other psychology classes I was taking at the same time. Both psych and neuro classes compliment one another well, and this is no exception!

    Course highlights:

    For me, the highlights of this course were all of the material we learned that was more psychology based- social cognition, emotional cognition, language development, etc. We learned about basic versus complex facial expressions and the evolutionary benefits of them. We also were able to study Patient H.M in a more in depth view than our other neuro/psyc courses, as well!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in the class as a psychology major, you need to review the anatomy and make sure to use the book as a resource. If you're really interested in the neuroscience behind how we think and what we do- this would be a great course to take! It is more biologically based than the Cognitive Psychology class, and I think that was the deciding factor in my decision. If you attend lecture and review the slides before exams, it isn't nearly as intimidating as it sounds.
