Contents

Perception of shape, color, motion, and stereoscopic depth
  • perceptual organization
  • object recognition.
  • Structures and processes in human memory
  • working memory theories
  • evelopment memory and attention
  • to introduce and familiarize students with the relationship between brain and language
  • to familiarize students with ways in which language and the brain are investigated
  • to understand how language is represented in the “typical” brain
  • to provide a foundation for students to understand how language breaks down as a result of acquired brain injury
  • to understand how language is represented and breaks down in bi/multilingual brains and in visuospatial languages

(i.e. sign language)

  • to give students the practical skills to properly report, review, and reference research articles in the field
Understanding of the structure and function of the brain as it relates to specific psychological processes and behaviors. Topics include foundations of neuropsychology, structure of the nervous system, functional specialization of the brain, cognitive functions, research methods, and clinical assessment and rehabilitation.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

On successfully completing the module students will be able to,
  • gain an understanding of the neuronal mechanisms underlying cognitive functions in healthy and patient populations, the functioning of neurons, and the essential methods of cognitive neuroscience.
  • present their knowledge of special topics from the field of Cognitive Neuroscience
  • apply the acquired understanding of the neuronal mechanisms underlying cognitive functions in healthy and patient

populations, explain the functioning of neurons and compare the essential methods of Cognitive Neuroscience

  • read and interpret scientific English literature in this field
  • summarize and compare research papers and highlight relevant information from these papers
  • debate scientific issues with peers or lecturers and thereby refer to complex concepts

Requirements for attendance (informal)
