The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Cognitive Neuroscience

when 4 July 2022 - 22 July 2022
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 380

Cognitive neuroscience is an emerging interdisciplinary field of study related to the neural substrate of mental processes. It is at the intersection of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience, combining theories of cognitive psychology with modern neuroscience methodologies. The course introduces questions of how to investigate mental states and behaviour and discusses methods by which inferences about the brain bases of cognition are made. During the course, basic neuroanatomy and functional imaging techniques will also be introduced. We consider evidence from patients with neurological diseases and from normal human participants.

The course will be a collaboration between several researchers from the CFIN community, involving scientists from Health, Nat-Tech, and the Humanities, as well as potentially several international partners.

The major parts of the course will be online to facilitate the participation of more international students and to include as many scientists as possible during a time of year where most are on vacation. The teaching will be accompanied with laboratory site demonstrations where students in Aarhus can see examples of methods, recorded so the students only participating online can follow. Other demonstrations of experiments will be presented online during teaching or as part of the preparation.
