2020 Courses

The School of Continuing Education (SCE) is working with Cornell leadership to monitor the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. All Cornell Summer Session online courses will proceed as scheduled. We will be adding online courses to the summer roster throughout the spring. On-campus classes set to begin before July 12 are cancelled or will be moved online. Currently, on-campus classes that begin on or after July 12 are set to proceed as scheduled.

Course description

This course provides an introduction to the science of the mind. Everyone knows what it’s like to think and perceive, but this subjective experience provides little insight into how minds emerge from physical intities like brains. To address this issue, cognitive science integrates work from at least five disciplines: Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Linguistics, and Philosophy. This course introduces students to the insights these disciplines offer into the workings of the mind by exploring visual perception, attention, memory, learning, problem solving, language, and consciousness.
