Course content

Cognitive neuroscience is the state-of-the-art discipline for both scientists and practitioners interested in the link between brain and mind. Watching and monitoring the activity of the brain while it is processing information provides an incredible window into our human nature. It bridges the gap between several connected disciplines such as psychology, medicine, and computer sciences. This program is suitable for psychology graduates, professionals, and medical technicians interested in understanding how, with the aid of advanced neuroimaging techniques, both our mind and brain function. The programme is organized around a core that integrates a course in cognitive neuroscience along with cutting-edge developments in neuroimaging, including functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and Neuroimaging (subject to validation).

Electroencephalography (EEG). Students with a keen interest in the topic will be engaged in research programs from the staff that use different technologies (EEG, biofeedback, and the eye tracker).
