Reading Short Course on Neuroscience Methods

Short Course: 13 to 16 June 2017 - cancelled
Neuroscientific methods in research design

Who should attend?

This four day course will benefit post-graduate and doctoral students in the Humanities and Social Sciences interested in a critical understanding of how Cognitive Neuroscience methods are used and are interested in incorporating Cognitive Neuroscience approaches or results in their own work.

Course content

The course provides an introduction to contemporary neuroimaging techniques, including empirical design for electroencephalographic, and functional magnetic resonance brain imaging (EEG and fMRI, when recorded separately and simultaneously), as well as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Demonstration and training components draw on existing social neuroscience data from emotional regulation, language, decision making and learning and memory paradigms.

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/ERP, fMRI and combined EEG/fMRI techniques is provided as well as a critical survey of the associated analytic approaches.
