COGS 5130 - Neurodevelopment and Plasticity

Overview of brain development including: embryonic neurogenetics; evolutionand evo-devo; how emergent behavioral capabilities reflect neural growth inneurobehavioral development; and how disruptions of neurodevelopment causedevelopmental disabilities. Also offered as PSYC 5150. Offered bi-annually inSpring semester.

COGS 5140 - Neurobiology of Language: Typical and Atypical Cognition and Language Development

Survey of current research on language acquisition in developmentally delayed/pathological populations, including but not restricted to Autism, WilliamsSyndrome, Down Syndrome, and Specific Language Impairment. Examination ofwhat the language delays and deficits reveal about each disorder, the processes oflanguage acquisition, the representation and organization of language, and thebiology/neuropsychology/genetics of language. Also offered as PSYC 5445.

COGS 5150 - Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Across the Lifespan

The cognitive neuroscience approach to the study of language across the lifespan. Recent advances in neuroimaging techniques such as MRI, ERP, TMS, and fNIRS are combined with classic lesion studies to address the neurobiological bases of typical and atypical language processing.
