    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it looks at the brain and how it reacts to stimulus. It looks at the neuroscience, language, machines, etc. Cognitive science is my major so i am biased in this category but i love absolutely everything about this class.

    Course highlights:

    I love the neuroscience aspect of this class. The neuroscience involves the medial aspect of cognitive science. For example, determining where language is formulated in the brain, which region of the brain controls what, and what happens to the way we function if the brain is damaged

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would make friends in this course. During lecture, there is a lot of information that is covered. Having friends in the class allows you to be able to meet up outside of class and discuss the curriculum. Most of the projects are group projects too, so it would make it easier to have a consistent group to work with.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great introduction course to Cognitive Science. You have a different lecturer each class because there are numerous speakers. Overall, you get a comprehensive few of the course material, which is very useful. You do not need to be a Cognitive Science major to enjoy the class. Midterms and exams are typically multiple choice. Attending office hours is also very useful because it helps to understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    Language, sleep patterns, how the mind is structured, psychology etc. The course is an introductory class that provides basic knowledge of the brain. Some philosophical material is also covered.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study ahead of time. Because the information is different each class, it is imperative to spread out your studying. By doing this, you will be able to understand each class thoroughly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very informative and gives you a taste of all the different fields Cognitive Science touches upon to answer the questions it has. Fields were: neuroscience, linguistics, computer science, psychology, and perhaps a few more that I didn't even recognize.

    Course highlights:

    All the fields that Cognitive science uses are interconnected somewhere, and some how. Even though one might not realize it. For instance, Marr and his 'Levels of Analysis' uses concepts from neuroscience, biology and computer science to answer how an organism works, how it implements it's functionality and why it does it. That being said, there are many more things that might overwhelm a student. That's why it's important to review the slides and your notes to make sure you understand the concepts being taught.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every Lecture as guest speakers, even though they provide their slides and supplemental readings to help students understand the topic they will be lecturing on, also add their own take and analysis on the topics, which don't usually make it onto the slides. GO TO LECTURE!
