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.

Course content
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.

Experience level
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.
