S153: Topics in Neuroscience: Brain Mapping and Mind Reading in Splash Fall 12 (Oct. 20, 2012)
A brief introduction to the human brain through the lens of the methods used to decode it. How do we form thoughts? How do we distinguish between colors? sounds? hot and cold? Starting at the cellular level, we will quickly jump into the basis for the neural networks that define thought, emotion, sensation, and language. Students will gain an understanding of how both historical methods and modern technologies have allowed scientists to “map” the brain, and most recently to decode thoughts (i.e. mind reading!). We will examine these topics through case studies, and will discuss recent advances and applications in the field of “mind reading,” or as it is more commonly known in neuropsychology, thought pattern recognition.
