COGS202 is BEST cogs subject. Everyone thought cogs101 was interesting??? NOPE - it was this one! You learned about so many interesting things, like synaesthesia, how electrical impulses create motor movement, cortical mapping, the mirror hand illusion, agnosias and so much more. The only trouble is the amount of content, but unlike cogs100, it's a lot easier to grasp because you have the baseline knowledge now. This was kinda more like the icing on the cake. Make sure you attend the lectures - our convenor Anina was such a blessing and was so keen to answer any questions. Also, you have to start the research report early because it is very difficult, and takes a lot of *attention* to detail.

This. Is. The. Greatest. The amount of content may feel impossible at times but it will be worth it. Genuinely a fascinating and enjoyable unit. The weekly quizzes are great to help check your understanding, and you can revisit them as often as you like to help you study for the exams. Experimental report is a little tough but as long as you have taken notes during the experiment then you have everything you need. If you've kept up to date with lectures and readings then you'll sail through the exam (but be prepared for short answer responses - be sure you can explain key experiments and concepts) and feel like a champion after :) If you think the human brain is amazing and you're keen to find out more on how it works - this unit is for you!

I loved this unit! There is a huge amount of content, so try to do your readings every week, even though the textbook can be tough. As long as you keep on top of the content, it's a very interesting and enjoyable unit to do. The tutorials are very useful and also fun, since we got to use the Oculus Rift for some experiments. Interesting and engaging lectures with staff who really care about the content they're teaching. Would definitely recommend for anyone interested in neuroscience!
