1. Doctoral Programme in Cognitive Neuroscience

    %A %B %e%q, %Y by admin




    Cognitive Neuroscience originated from the interdisciplinary combination of domains as diverse as cognitive psychology, neurophysiology, linguistics and clinical neuropsychology, among others, and from the technological advances in the field of neuroimaging and computation. This interdisciplinary combination aims to discover the brain mechanisms underlying psychological processes, specially those supporting language.

    The objective of the programme is to provide training to researchers in the field of Cognitive Neuroscience with a view toward both basic knowledge development and knowledge transfer to the fields of Health and Education. Special attention will be given to interdisciplinary theoretical training and advanced neuroimaging techniques.

    The programme includes research teams on the following subjects: Language and Reading, Neurobiology of Multilingualism, Neurodegeneration and Language Disorders, and Advanced Methods in Cognitive Neuroscience.
