Meets TTH 9:30AM-11:00AM • Internet
show description

Description: Biological clocks regulate many complex individual and interactive behaviors – from waking up in anticipation of the morning alarm to the seasonal migration of birds. Life on Earth evolved over billions of years in the presence of daily and seasonal fluctuations. Organisms have adapted time keeping systems that synchronize internal functions to predictable changes in the external environment. These rhythms help optimize timing of crucial behaviors, including sleep-wake cycles, foraging/metabolism, mating, hibernation, and mood. This engaging course explores the role of biological clocks in health and disease.

41440 • Holahan, Charles
Meets TTH 2:00PM-3:30PM • Internet
Wr
show description

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the interrelationship between physical health
and illness on the one hand and our cognitions, emotions, and behaviors on the other. The course
examines the role of psychological factors in the emergence and progress of physical illness, the role of
physical illness in psychological adjustment, and the role of behavioral factors in maintaining and
enhancing physical health. Key topics include: (a) the nature of health psychology and the central role of
life stressors; (b) coping with chronic illness; (c) the patient, the patient's family, and the health care
system; and (d) disease prevention and health promotion. Discussion will encompass conceptual,
methodological, and applied issues in the field. Conceptual issues will include the nature of life
stressors, biological pathways through which life stressors relate to physical illness, and stress
moderators. Learning to write well is also a key goal of the course. In completing the writing
assignments, I will provide you with constructive feedback to help you become a better writer. In
addition, you will have opportunities to discuss and comment on other students' work in class.

This course has been designed to appeal to students who have an interest in working with
young children with disabilities and their families. A child under age three with a disability or

provided by Early Intervention Specialists (EISs) and other Early Childhood Intervention
personnel. The primary aim of this course is to provide you with an orientation to the ECI
program. Although many of you do not plan to work for ECI, the information and the
techniques learned in this class can be used when working with young children and their
families in any social service or early childhood setting.


PSY 341K • Natrl Human Beh N Real Wrld-Wb

41438 • Yu, Chen
Meets TTH 2:00PM-3:30PM • Internet
show description

"Natural Human Behavior in the Real World"

The field of psychological research has been largely influenced by the successful methods of experimental psychology in the 20th century. Many psychology findings have been obtained from simplified and controlled lab situations. However, it has become clear that many of those laboratory findings only hold true in the deprived laboratory conditions but cannot be generalized and replicated in the real world. The goal of this course is to train students in a number of fundamental skills that they will use to conduct psychological research “in the wild” to examine and understand human behavior in complex real-world environments. With a hands-on training approach, students will learn how to design experiments that will be conducted in the real world, how to use mobile sensing technology to collect behavioral data, and how to discover behavioral patterns by analyzing fine-grained data. Students will conduct a behavioral study with the aim to provide research evidence to overcome the challenges that the real world poses, such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on campus life. Potential research ideas include, for example, pedestrian visual attention to maintain social distancing, student attention assessment during on-line versus in-person instruction, and effectiveness of in-vivo versus simulation training.

41439 • Champagne, Frances
Meets TTH 3:30PM-5:00PM • Internet
show description

This lecture course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the process of brain development from embryogenesis through adulthood with an emphasis on the role of the environment in directing this process. Initial lectures focus on the origins of the central nervous system, including topics such as the organization of the brain, neurogenesis, cellular differentiation, migration and targeting of neurons, synapse formation and refinement of the nervous system. In the second half of the course, lectures will focus on the infant brain and the role of experiences during infancy in modifying brain function. Topics will also include recent advances in our understanding of the role of gene-environment interactions and epigenetic programming and shaping brain development. Throughout the course, students will be guided through examples of how changes in the developing nervous system lead to behavioral patterns both in infancy and adulthood.  In addition to lectures, students will have smaller group discussions with the instructor to review and explore topics in more depth.

Cognitive and computational neuroscience is one of the fastest-growing areas of neuroscience. It spans the more traditional cognitive neuroscience, as well as, clinical, computational and network neuroscience. It requires skills and training drawing expertise from traditionally diverse disciplines and fields (medical imaging, neuroscience, computer science, and psychology among several). Often times, completing a competitive research project in a timely fashion requires, working in a team, and handling the full life cycle of research – from data acquisition and organization to data mining, analysis, and visualization. The modern team-based data science approach requires project management, communication and documentation to quickly and effectively implement the required aspects of the project to produce results and deliver a product within a limited time frame.
