Cursusdoelen
Students are familiar with the most important theories and concepts of Cognitive Psychology, Biopsychology, Neuropsychology and Developmental Psychology (related to cognition and the brain). Students are able to:     
  • name the most important parts of the anatomy and the functions of the nervous system relevant to psychology.             
  • name the research methodologies of Cognitive Psychology.             
  • name the modules (theories and functions) of the cognitive information-processing model.             
  • describe the ontogenetic development (development during the life cycle) of the most important cognitive functions and anatomical structures.


 
Inhoud
Throughout the entire component, there is an emphasis on the ontogenetic development (development during the life cycle) of cognitive functions and biological structures. You will initially receive a thorough introduction to Biopsychology. You will learn about the anatomy of the nervous system, the process of neurotransmission, characteristics of human perception, and motor systems how brain activity associated with specific cognitive functions can be assessed. You will acquire detailed knowledge of the functional perspective that is central to Cognitive Psychology. This perspective of human cognition is based on the role that certain cognitive functions are thought to play, which is based on numerous controlled lab experiments. In the last decades, these experiments also include various brain measures, which implies that models of cognitive functions became more brain based. The cognitive functions discussed are: perception, attention, memory (both working memory and long-term memory) and its relevance to the real world. You will learn about higher cognitive functions related to language, decision-making, problem-solving, and the influence of emotions on cognition. You acquire knowledge about key aspects of Developmental Psychology such as the development of motoric, language, and cognitive skills and methods to study the development of these skills. We will discuss patterns of development within these specific areas. Furthermore, we address topics related to the locus of developmental change (interaction between nature and nurture) and discuss the idea of critical or sensitive periods in development.
Moreover,during the course workshops will be organised regarding: Artificial intelligence and robotics, Virtual and augmented reality, and Electroencephalography (EEG). These workshops will provide you with general knowledge and insights regarding the application of these tools in the domain of cognitive psychology.
