Program Description:
Program Description:
Neuroscience 
Neuroscience is one of the most exciting and fastest growing scientific fields. It spans studies of dysfunctional brain circuits, neurobiological perspectives on creativity, and asks: What is consciousness?

Whether you wish to approach neuroscience from the cognitive, behavioral, cellular, molecular, neurobiological, or psychological perspective, we have a Core Course for you.

CORE COURSE OPTIONS 

Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness + Lab 
Fall/Spring, 6 Credits (3-Credit Course + 3-Credit Lab) 
Despite decades of scientific research and centuries of philosophical analysis, consciousness remains one of the greatest scientific challenges of our time. What is consciousness and which brain mechanisms shape the unique sense of self, implicit in all our thoughts and perceptions? How can we transform the subjectivity of human experience to an objective topic of research? Through the lenses of behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, we explore both conceptual and methodological perspectives of relevance to the study of human consciousness. We critically analyze the obstacles and challenges inherent to the study of consciousness. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Bologna-Florence
Core Course Week: Denmark 
Prerequisites: One course in neuroscience, physiological psychology, biological psychology, or cognitive psychology at university level.
Corequisite: Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness Research Lab 

Cognitive Neuroscience of Creativity
How do we understand creativity and the brain? This course asks you to explore and debate human creativity through neurobiological, cognitive, and psychological perspectives. Main topics include discussions of the definition of creativity; psychological and cognitive profiles of creative individuals; functional neuroanatomy; the neurochemistry of the creative processes; the neural correlates of creative thought; cognitive processes and lastly, cognitive strategies for optimizing creative output.
Week-Long Study Tour: United Kingdom
Core Course Week: Denmark 
Prerequisites: One course in neuroscience, physiological psychology, or biological psychology at university level.

Psychopharmacology: Substances and the Brain 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
This course focuses on how the brain’s physiology is affected in different psychiatric disorders and under the influence of various psychoactive drugs, both legal and illegal. Course topics are approached from a biological, chemical, and psychological perspective. Concepts including neurotransmitters, basic neurobiology, psychiatric disorders, and psychoactive drugs are studied extensively.
