[PSYC G4460] Cognitive Neuroscience and the Media

Shohamy, Daphna
[PSYC G4460] Cognitive Neuroscience and the Media

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This class was the most interesting as well as one of the most non-stressful classes I've taken at Columbia. Shohamy obviously has a passion for the subject, and keeps the discussion extremely interesting. She is also very flexible when it comes to assignments and deadlines, and she brings you COFFEE and often pastries to class each week.

All you need to do is participate, and it's easy to do since the discussion often becomes a general one on the purpose/ethics of science and media.

You'll never look at a science-related news story the same way again!

Workload:

Reading each week. Short and generally quite interesting.
Two short, extremely easy write-ups of class discussion, due at the end of the semester.
One approx. 10 page paper.
One presentation.
