Discover Mind and Brain. One of the most compelling questions in psychology is how the mind works, and the relationship between mental functioning and the physical brain. It is a question that was first addressed by philosophers, that psychologists have more recently tackled using the scientific method. In this seminar, we will explore how one studies minds, and the challenges involved in this endeavor. We will also discuss research concerning the contents of what is in our mind (sensory data), and the limits of the mind's ability to process this information. Finally, we will discuss how such mental functions are related to the physical activity of the brain, and how scientists understand this connection.
Enrollment Requirements
Prerequisites: Students who have already successfully completed the first year seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
  Course Description
The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
