Since encountering the likes of Psychodelirium and DT Strain at PF, I have been itching to learn more about how the brain works. Here are some lecture notes for a first course in cognitive science.

Let's discuss.

I too am very interested in this subject Tom. I read over a few of the lecture notes, and when I have a little more time I'll post a few things myself.

oh and there's a ton of good stuff at cognet.mit.edu. you may have to subscribe to it, but if you're a student then your school probably has one and you should be able to get to it.
MIT press publishes a lot of cognitive neuroscience books and you can read some of them there.

My PDF reader isn't working for some reason, so I'm not sure what you're looking at. But for more cogsci stuff, see also

I suggest anyone who's interested in cognitive science read Marvin Minsky's, The Society of Mind. It's an easy read because it's written as two hundred, one-page essays on different aspects of cognitive science that provide a good introduction to the subject and when put together present Minsky's own ideas.

BTW, here's a link to various philosophy radio programs (interviews and such), some of which are Philosophy of Mind programs:

Um, I could be of fair use. But, is it just me or did the notes not work? I had several blank pages come up, and of all things, quotation marks everywhere. (i guess its my bad luck, that I usually have with computers)
