CORE COURSE OPTIONS

Affective Neuroscience: Emotions, Cognition, and Behavior
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
In this course, we aim to understand the interplay between human emotions, cognitive processes, and their neural networks. To achieve this, we use findings from the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience and the psychological study and cognition and emotion. Basic, complex, and social emotions are explored in relation to their interpretation, expression, and regulation, for example, in adaptive and maladaptive processes. The most recent research findings from neuroimaging and cognitive psychology are reviewed within the context of evolution and individual differences.
Week-Long Study Tour: Paris
Core Course Week: Study tour within Sweden + a two-day seminar in Stockholm
Prerequisite: One semester of neuroscience, physiological psychology, or biological psychology at university level.
Corequisite: Affective Neuroscience Research Lab
