How does the human mind work? We all know the brain is responsible, but what are the mechanisms involved? How do our minds become conscious, perceive, remember and make important decisions?

This course provides you with a sound introduction to human cognition and how cognitive neuroscientists investigate it. Provided by the world-renowned Cognitive Psychology Lab at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, topics include perception and consciousness, thinking and decision making, as well as the underlying brain mechanisms.

Moreover, we give you hands-on experience with the state-of-the-art tools used to investigate the functioning of the mind. You will learn to set up, and run a cognition experiment, measure eye gaze, and interpret brain waves from EEGs. You will program your own computer task, analyze your own data and present the findings. We will also look at the practical side. What are the implications of brain and mind studies for design, marketing, health & safety, and the law? The course includes an excursion to the SPINOZA brain imaging center, where you will see an fMRI scanner in action.

At the end of this course you will: 

  • Understand core concepts and methods in cognitive neuroscience: how the brain represents and processes information
  • Leading to perception, consciousness and decision making.
  • Be aware of recent advances in the fields of cognition, and its pitfalls.
  • Understand brain anatomy and mechanisms, and how they relate to cognitive function.
  • Be able to design and implement your own basic psycho-physical investigation: “measuring the mind”.
  • Know how to assess individual people’s perceptual and decision-making skills.
  • Be able to perform basic quantitative analyses of behavioural and electro-physiological data.
