Despite the amazing advances we have achieved in our understanding of the nervous system, countless fundamental questions regarding the relation between the brain and the mind remain unanswered. Examples of these questions include: How is sensory data converted to subjective perception? How are memories stored and recovered? Is the brain a general-purpose learning instrument or a toolbox of innate and specialized processors? Bircham University’s Cognitive Psychology program studies the methods, findings and controversies of the cognitive neuroscience and psychology. A proportional and developmental perspective will be assumed to study the theories of human cognition and brain evolution, using information obtained from animals and young children.
