Obiettivi formativi

The course aims at:

1) Presenting the methods used in cognitive and affective neuroscience

2) Outlining the neurobiological bases of higher-order perceptual, cognitive and affective functions

3) Describing the anatomical and functional interactions between cognitive and affective processes

4) Discussing neuronal mechanisms underpinning major neuropsychological conditions entailing deficits in cognitive and affective functions.

Risultati dell'apprendimento attesi

At the end of the course, students should become acquainted with basic neuroscientific principles underlying normal functioning of cognitive and affective processes, the similarities and differences between cognition and emotion, and the neuroanatomical and neurofunctional changes associated with the major neuropsychological conditions entailing deficits in either higher-order cognitive or affective processes.

Students are expected to appreciate the rationale of the common methods applied in cognitive and affective neuroscience.

Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento

The exam includes a written test with multiple-choice questions spanning the whole program of the course. Independently of the score in the written test, the students will always have the opportunity to undertake the viva interview. If the written test is passed (score ≥ 18), the students can choose either to accept the score or to do the viva.

Students must demonstrate that they have developed basic knowledge of the topics dealt with in the program.

A dedicate webex link will be give for the vivas
