When, where, and how did the modern human mind evolve?
Join Karenleigh A. Overmann for our online course in Cognitive Evolution. This course employs the theories and methods of several academic domains (cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, archaeology, linguistics, philosophy of mind, etc.) to interpret the tangible evidence for the evolution of mind—non-human primate anatomy and behavior, human neuroanatomy, hominin paleontology, and archaeology. Here, you will explore the origins and adaptive purposes of concept formation, spatial cognition, social cognition, language, symbolic structures, technology, and working memory on your way to a deeper understanding of the evolutionary changes in form and function of the mind. Classes begin August 23 and end December 18.
Visit us at the Center for Cognitive Archaeology for more information on classes. The deadline to register for courses is August 29, 2021. For information on registration, please visit: https://www.uccs.edu/lases/programs-a-l/cca
