The study of cognition and its neural mechanisms is a fascinating area of psychology and neuroscience with relevance to a range of problems in the modern world. What are the genetic contributions to brain disorders? Can we predict consumer preferences from brain activity? What are the effects of brain injury on cognitive abilities and behaviour? Drawing staff from Psychology and Life Sciences, this course will engage you with contemporary research on cognition, brain and behaviour from both behavioural and neuroscience perspectives. The course will develop your practical skills with cognitive neuroscience techniques such as EEG, eyetracking, and brain stimulation as well as develop your quantitative and broader research skills.
