Perceptual and cognitive states depend on the activity of the
brain. What can the study of the nervous system tell us about how
humans perceive, remember and think?
The course will cover: basic neurosciences from a cognitive
perspective; a review of the experimental methods used to observe
brain activity (focusing primarily on fMRI); organization of the
cerebral cortex; visual perception and object recognition;
attention; language and the brain; problem-solving; and the concept
of intelligence. Emphasis will be put on using the knowledge gained
in this course to formulate, address and solve problems in the area
of cognitive neuroscience.
