CNS5037 Neurophilosophy of Consciousness

Course Description

The results from recent brain research have sent shockwaves far beyond the boundaries of neurophysiology and neuropsychology. The implications reach into the very nature of the human experience, both personally and culturally. Much of the research has validated what many of us have long suspected to be true: consciousness does indeed affect the brain and thus the entire individual. Our thoughts and feelings directly affect the chemistry of the brain, which in turn largely determines the health of our entire being—both as single organisms and as a species. In this course, students will examine the timely and exciting intersection between neuroscience, philosophy of mind, and ethics.
