About the Course:

The Berkeley Review of Cognitive Science Articles (BROCA) is intended to assist students in finding, understanding, analyzing, and discussing fascinating cutting­-edge research. The papers we discuss will be selected and presented by professors, post­doctoral fellows and graduate students who are involved in cognitive science research at UC Berkeley and beyond.

Every week, students will be assigned a paper that was selected by a guest speaker to read for the next class session. Each student will be responsible for reading the paper and posting a response on the course page at least two hours before class.

In the middle of the semester, students will be required to visit office hours for a professor of their choice and submit a summary of the resulting discussion. Towards the end of the semester, students will be required to give a short presentation to the class on a cognitive science article of their choice.

Grades will be based on attendance, participation in discussions, completion of responses, submission of the office hours assignment, and the presentation. As this is a discussion-­based class, only two absences are permitted in a semester.

How to Enroll:

Enrollment will be handled on the first day of class (1/28/15). If you are unable to make it or know you will not be able to, email us.
