Syllabus

Common characteristics of the Integrated Course unit

Specific characteristics of the Module

Course unit contents: 1. Neuroimaging techniques (functional magnetic resonance imaging, fMRI; near-infrared spectroscopy, NIRS, Positron emission tomography, PET)
a) principles
b) methodological issues
c) data analysis and discussion
2. Brain stimulation techniques (transcranial magnetic stimulation, TMS; transcranial electrical stimulation, tES)
a) principles
b) methodological issues
c) data analysis
3. Coregistrazion approaches (ad es. TMS-fMRI, EEG-fMRI)
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The classes will cover all the topics in their general aspects. Students will further explore the themes by using the textbook and the supporting material provided by the teacher (articles and slides).
Training classes will be devoted to practically deepen theoretical issues, to practical sessions of data analysis, and (possibly) to simulate the final exam.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Optional chapters from the book "S. A. Huettel, A. W. Song, G. McCarthy., Functional magnetic resonance imaging. Sunderland USA: SINAUER associates, 2014": 3, 4, 6, 9.
Optional chapters from the book "Walsh, V., Pascual-Leone, A., Kosslyn, S.M., Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: A Neurochronometrics of Mind. Bradford Books, 2005": 1-6.
Apart from the suggested chapters, other scientific articles and slides will be pointed out and/or shared during the classes.
