LINGUIST 232B: Seminar in Lexical Semantics: Unaccusativity

A general introduction to the phenomenon of unaccusativity, followed by in-depth exploration of several facets of this phenomenon, chosen according to participant's interests. Potential topics include: an assessment of proposed semantic determinants of unaccusativity, the linguistic representation of unaccusativity, its crosslinguistic manifestations, and case studies of unaccusative phenomena (e.g. auxiliary selection, resultatives, the causative alternation, psych-verbs, weather verbs). These topics may be approached from theoretical, typological, psycholinguistic, and acquisition perspectives. May be repeated for credit with different content. Prerequisite: Linguist 232A or permission of the instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 1-4 | Repeatable for credit
Instructors: Levin, B. (PI)

PSYCH 232: Brain and Decision

This seminar explores how emerging findings at the interface of neuroscience, psychology, and economics combine to inform our understanding of how the brain makes decisions. Topics include neural processes related to reward, punishment, probability, risk, time, reflection, and social interaction, as well as theoretical implications and practical applications. We will briefly touch on the possibility of extending individual brain and behavioral data down to physiological and up to aggregate levels of analysis.nBecause the course involves interdisciplinary material, it takes the format of a research seminar with background discussions, and is targeted at graduate students and advanced undergraduates who aim to conduct related research. Goals include: (1) building familiarity with relevant neuroscience, psychology, and economics concepts; (2) increasing awareness of key relevant literature; and (3) preparation to conduct and advance innovative interdisciplinary research.
