The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Cognitive Neuroscience

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 teaching will be accompanied with laboratory site demonstrations.
