Course Description

This course will examine the relationship between cognition and emotion. We will consider the different theories about what emotion is and how these relate to cognition. We will examine the experimental results of emotion on attention, memory, and learning, and interpret these in terms of neuroscience and evolutionary theory. We will also consider integrated models of emotion and cognition and how these relate to different emotional issues.
