Who should attend?
This summer school is for postgraduates in the Social Sciences/Humanitieswho are interested in attending introductory classes on methods in Cognitive Neuroscience. It is more specifically for students who
- wish to gain a basic and critical understanding of how Cognitive Neuroscience methods are used.
- have an interest in incorporating Cognitive Neuroscience approaches or results in their own work.
- wish to learn how to critically evaluate research incorporating Cognitive Neuroscience methods.
We will provide exposure to contemporary neuroimaging techniques including empirical design for electroencephalographic and functional magnetic resonance brain imaging. There will also be components on Bayesian Statistics and Computational Neuroscience. Participants will be ample opportunity to look at and critically discuss on-going projects on normal and abnormal brain development.
While students are likely to have some experience in empirical research design, no prior knowledge of Cognitive Neuroscience is assumed. Some hands-on experience with EEG/ERPtechniques is provided.
The summer school is part of the training programme offered under the EU-funded MultiMind project. The MultiMind project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska Curie grant agreement No 765556
