- effectively search, interpret and summarize scientific literature in the rapidly developing interdisciplinary field of cognitive neuroscience;
- critically evaluate and discuss new trends in this field, particularly with regard to possible applications;

Omschrijving This course focuses on a selection of current perspectives and issues in the field of cognitive neuroscience. While addressing these, the application of neuro-cognitive knowledge and methods to 'every-day' situations (e.g., driving a car or deciding on a purchase) is of particular interest.

Examples of topics that have been discussed in the course are the usefulness of physiological measures in applied settings, and the influence of emotion on cognition and decision making.
