3 units (fi 6)(SECOND, 0-3S-0)

Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry

Seminar course with lectures and reading-based class discussion on recent cognitive-affective neuroscience findings in psychiatry. All psychiatric disorders are characterised by alterations in emotions, thoughts and cognition, yet neuroscientific evidence to corroborate and refine this observation has only recently begun to be integrated into psychiatric theory and research. Readings (updated annually) and discussions will review neural manifestations of cognitive-affective disturbances across and within mental illnesses. Following introductory lecture sessions, students will review, analyze and discuss in class recent neurocognitive findings in psychiatry. The goal of this course is to promote a neurobiological understanding of cognitive-affective changes within and across mental illnesses. Prerequisites: PSYCH 375 or NEURO 210 or PSYCH 377 or consent of the Department.
