NSCI 307*

Natural Science Requirement
NSCI307

Fashion Design, Toy Design, and Product Design offer Natural Science courses that are specific to their curricula. All other majors choose one course from the following offerings:

 

The Psychology of Seeing
NSCI307

If you can see no colors at all, you cannot see white either. You recognize an old friend, even though she has changed. Your brain constructs these experiences, but how? And what happens when the brain doesn’t work normally?
 

Imagination and the Brain
NSCI307

Why can you imagine a new space monster, but not a new color? The worlds you can imagine are shaped by the way the brain constructs imagery. Thus, mental images leave their traces in the art you make.


The Science of Sleep and Dreaming
NSCI307

A multidisciplinary natural science class about sleeping and dreaming, focusing on the content and structure of dreaming and “dream logic.” Learn about the physiology of sleep and sleep disorders and about the neurology and phenomenology of dream content.
