Primary Instructor:

Attention and cognitive control are crucial for enabling goal-directed behavior. In this seminar, we will discuss a broad range of empirical and theoretical papers that examine these functions. Topics will include selective attention, response inhibition, task switching, self-control, and conflict resolution among others. In some cases, the neural bases of these processes and clinical disorders involving these processes will also be covered. Each week, one or more students will lead a discussion of important scientific articles drawn from the attention and cognitive control literatures.

Course Requirements:

Grades will be based on student presentations, active participation in the seminar, weekly assignments (e.g., reaction papers, in-class quizzes, etc.,), and a research proposal.

Intended Audience:

Classes will be held in seminar format with active participation by all attendees.
