Cognitive neuroscience is the scientific study of biological substrates underlying cognition, with a focus on the neural substrates of mental processes. It is a branch of both psychology and neuroscience, overlapping with disciplines such as biological psychology, cognitive psychology and neuropsychology. Cognitive neuropsychology uses data from single cases of individuals with brain injury or neurological illness to refine theoretical models of cognitive processing. On this course, students will explore topics including: The physiological bases and practical applications of cognitive neuroscience techniques; How brain activity translates into cognitive processes; The theoretical and biological foundations of cognitive science; How brain damages impact on cognitive functions; Cognitive neuroscience of language; Cognitive neuropsychology of reading and face processing.
