Brain Reading short course

We are pleased to announce the Brain Reading short course, held June 13th-16th, 2016, at the University of Reading, UK. The course is part of the South East Doctoral Training Centre, funded by the the ESRC Advanced Training Initiative.


Objective

This is an intermediary short course aimed at post-graduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences interested in a critical understanding of how Cognitive Neuroscience methods are used, or are interested in incorporating Cognitive Neuroscience approaches or results in their own work. The course will provide exposure to contemporary neuroimaging techniques, including empirical design for electroencephalographic, and functional magnetic resonance brain imaging (when recorded separately and simultaneously), as well as eye tracking. Demonstration and training components will draw on existing social neuroscience data from emotional regulation, language, decision making and learning and memory paradigms. Students will be expected to have some experience in empirical research design but no prior knowledge of Cognitive Neuroscience is assumed.  Limited hands-on experience with EEG/ERP, fMRI and combined EEG/fMRI techniques will be provided as well as a critical survey of the associated analytic approaches.
