PSYCH 221: Applied Vision and Image Systems

This course is an introduction to imaging technologies including hardware and the image processing pipeline. There is an emphasis on how these technologies accommodate the requirements of the human visual system. The course is intended for students interested in various aspects of imaging technologies, includingn- Digital cameras and displaysn- Image processing and compressionn- Image quality analysisn- Human color, pattern and motion visionnThe course consists of lectures, tutorials and a project. Lectures cover the tools used in digital imaging and image quality measurement. Tutorials and projects include extensive software simulations of the digital imaging pipeline. Some background in mathematics (linear algebra) and programming (Matlab) is valuable.

PSYCH 222: From Classic Experiments to Cutting Edge Neuroimaging: The Functional Neuroanatomy of Visual Cortex

We will discuss the fundamental organizational principles of the visual system starting by discussing classic papers in non-human primates and proceeding to discuss recent neuroimaging studies in humans. We will then examine how understanding these organizational principles has influenced mapping the functional organization of visual system. Finally, we will analyze neuroimaging datasets and examine how well one can evaluate and define visual areas in the human brains by understanding these principles.

PSYCH 223: Social Norms

This course covers research and theory on the origins and function of social norms. Topics include the estimation of public opinion, the function of norms as ideals and standards of judgment, and the impact of norms on collective and individual behavior. In addition to acquainting students with the various forms and functions of social norms the course will provide students with experience in identifying and formulating tractable research questions.

PSYCH 225: Special Neuroscience Seminar with Dr. Shinobu Kitayama

How will culture influence the human mind? Is culture a superficial overlay on the basic, universal computational machine called the mind? Alternatively, is culture a crucial constitutive element of the mind? If so, what are specific mechanisms underlying this constitution process? And what theoretical framework do we need to make a visible progress on these questions? More generally, how can we start discussing meaningfully and productively about various problematic dichotomies such as mind versus body, culture versus biology, and nurture versus nature? An emerging field of cultural neuroscience has the potential of addressing these and other important questions and thus bridging natural, behavioral, and social sciences of the human mind.nnThis seminar reviews the field of cultural neuroscience. It starts with a discussion of some theoretical foundations of the field, including cultural psychology, cognitive and social neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, and population genetics (PART 1). We will then discuss several specific content domains with a focus on cross-cultural variations in brain responses (PART 2). The seminar will conclude with a discussion on gene x environment interaction in varying cultural contexts (PART 3). nnStudents can take the seminar for credit. One unit for attending all five sessions, two units for all five session and a short paper.
