Syllabus
Prerequisites: Being this an introductory course, there is no particular prerequisite, even if it is advisable to have basic notions of neuroanatomy and physiology of the nervous system, and some basic principles of physics and biology.
Target skills and knowledge: How does our brain generate our mental processes and which methods offer us the possibility to study these issues? This course will introduce the principles, evidence-based theories, and some methods of study in cognitive neuroscience. Representative topics include perceptual, cognitive, emotional and motor processes, neuroimaging and neuromodulatory techniques (e.g., functional MRI, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation).
Examination methods: The main exam usually consists in multiple choice questions. The course also includes the active participation in lab studies (when available) and classroom presentations that could contribute to the final evaluation.
Assessment criteria: Students will have to demonstrate that they have understood the main contents of the integrated course. The active participation to the frontal classes and laboratory activities will also be taken into appropriate consideration.
The marking scale, like for all the other courses in the Italian University System, will consist in thirties. A sufficient preparation will correspond to a score of 18/30, while the full preparation will correspond to 30/30 cum laude. Please note that the final score will be given by the average of the scores obtained in the A and B modules.
