This practical participation-based course will provide an applied overview of the psychological foundations of learning and behavior, touching on the neurophysiological basis of learning and memory processes with a view to potential applications in technology, therapy and other areas. Participants will present on various aspects of learning and behavior - such as habituation, sensitization, conditioning and extinction - and place our understanding of these mechanisms in a relevant real-world context. This course will aim at an overview of general knowledge, as well as an in-depth look at early and current examples of human and animal research studies.

This course meets Wednesday 14-16:00 in GAFO 04/271.
