For introductory cognitive neuroscience, I think it is often best to start with interesting neuropsychological cases -- I think such cases provide an intriguing and intuitive way to get into the relationship between mind and brain. You already plan to talk about HM (and you can mention the movie Memento if you think students might be familiar or interested ...

There is a LOT more to "your eye doesn't 'see' images, your brain reconstructs them" then what is shown in that picture. After the image is flipped and distorted, contrast information at various scales is extracted and pretty much everything else is thrown away. Here is a simulation of that: This information is then used to build up progressively more ...

I'm in an undergraduate course on Cognitive Neuroscience and have found the textbook we chose, Principles of Neural Science, to be helpful and illustrative. Strictly speaking, cognitive neuroscience is the subject of but one of the book's sections, but if you are not requiring prerequisites I think it is appropriate to have the basics (and some possible ...

The university of Oslo teaches a rather big part of the history of psychological research. I've completed it myself, so I know for sure. Do note that the subject also involves a lot more than just history. https://www.uio.no/studier/emner/sv/psykologi/PSYC1200/

There are hundreds of introductory textbooks out there, not just for psych in general but for the fields in psychology, so choosing a text isn't straightforward. You would be best off asking for an expert opinion from those who have taught intro courses at a university, and then check the ratings on Amazon. For example, you can go the psychology department ...

I've been developing stato.de, an online platform to run HTML5/Javascript experiments, recruit participants via email, Facebook, or Twitter, and collect and evaluate results in real time on any web browser. Please see Mental Rotation for a demo that works on phones, tablets, and desktops; it does not require signup.
