Cursusdoelen
Upon completing this course, you will have gained insight in the field of Cognitive Neuropsychology, focussing on the key relationships between the brain, cognition and behaviour. 

1.    Processes and mechanisms: You can describe psychological functions / phenomena such as language, learning, memory, cognitive control, perception, attention, emotion and social cognition, in terms of neurocognitive processes and mechanisms (EK1.2)
2.    Analysis and diagnostics: On the basis of theoretical insights in the psychological functions mentioned in (1.), you can analyse and interpret disturbances in these functions in patients (EK 1.3, 1.4)
3.    Research methods: You can explain the advantages and caveats of different research methods used in the general and clinical neuropsychology and cognitive neurosciences, and thus evaluate the results from key experiments. You can select the appropriate research method for a scientific or clinically relevant diagnostic  question, and base this on sound arguments.  (EK1.4)
4.    Neuroanatomical basis: For these psychological functions and associated neuropsychological disorders, you can name the most important neuroanatomical structures/regions and argue why these play an important role in this psychological function / disorders (EK 1.2, 1.3)
Inhoud
This course is aimed at the general principles of cognitive neuroscience, and is a continuation of the courses B1:‘Brain & Cognition: an introduction, and B2: Clinical Neuropsychology. Students who have successfully completed the course SOW-BKI136 Brain (AI) are also eligible to follow this course.

The following themes will be discussed: Attention and perception, executive functions (working memory, cognitive control), emotion, social cognition, language. Within these themes, the emphasis will be on the underlying cognitive processes and their neural substrates, with a focus on gaining an understanding of the research that taught us what we know about these processes.  This course offers a theoretical framework of the fundamental principles of cognition and behaviour; additionally, this course provides insight in the potential underlying causes of problems in cognition and behaviour.
