    Lecture Objectives In this course, students will learn about complex brain functions, including high order cognition. The human brain is devoted to these and other complex mental functions. The intrinsic interest of these aspects of human behavior is unfortunately equaled by the difficulty-both technical and conceptual-involved in unraveling their neurobiological underpinnings. Nonetheless, over the last century a good deal of progress has been made in deciphering the structural and functional organization of the relevant brain regions. Especially important has been the steady accumulation of case studies that, by the signs and symptoms resulting from damage to specific brain regions, have indicated much about the primary location of the different complex brain functions. More recently, the advent of noninvasive brain imaging techniques has provided a much deeper understanding of some of these abilities in normal human subjects as well as in neurological patients. Finally, complementary electrophysiological experiments in non-human primates and other experimental animals have begun to elucidate the cellular correlates of many of these functions. Taken together, these observations have established a rapidly growing body of knowledge about the more complex aspects of the human brain. This general domain of investigation has come to be called cognitive neuroscience and is a field that promises to offer greater insight into particularly human brain functions. In this course, students will learn about complex brain functions, including high order cognition. The human brain is devoted to these and other complex mental functions. The intrinsic interest of these aspects of human behavior is unfortunately equaled by the difficulty-both technical and conceptual-involved in unraveling their neurobiological underpinnings.
