Aims
This course provides students with an opportunity to specialize in a cognitive neuroscience topic of their choice. The aim is to provide additional training, not provided elsewhere in the programme, at a theoretical, computational and/or methodological level to become a specialist in the chosen domain. 
 
Content
Second year CNS students may propose coursework equivalent to 6 EC (1 EC equals 28 hours) by formulating a properly argumented proposal to conduct a theoretical, computational or empirical study into one of their areas of interest, supervised by a senior staff member of the Donders Graduate School. Note that besides the content, the proposal should also make clear the specific educational aims as well as the final assessment. In addition, in order for the proposal to be accepted, the content of the course should not be dealt with in other CNS courses; any overlap with other CNS courses should be made explicit. Finally, a detailed time schedule of the course should also be included. Important: If you intend to do the Capita Selecta course, contact the course coordinator prior to the start of the work associated with the content of the proposal. Proposals that contain a schedule in retrospect will not be accepted.

This course is for CNS students only.
