Module code:ANATG009 (Add to my personalised list)
Title:Cognitive Systems Neuroscience
Credit value:15
Division:Division of Biosciences
Module organiser (provisional):Dr Daniel Bendor
Organiser's location:Bedford Way
Available for students in Year(s):
Module prerequisites:Option for MSc in Neuroscience, Dual Masters in Brain and Mind Sciences & MSc in Biomedical Sciences. 
Module outline:The module discusses cognitive systems and processing in the central nervous system. As well as teaching how the central nervous system processes sensory information (visual, auditory and olfactory), higher-level perceptual and cognitive systems including language processing, face processing, the role of attentional systems, spatial representation and the use of fMRI to examine visual consciousness are also described.  
Module aims:To expose the students to the world-class research in clinical neuroscience 
Module objectives:The students will become familiar with the cutting edge research into Cognitive Neuroscience. They will grasp and understand the knowledge of the research in this field as it progresses. Neuroimaging techniques including fMRI, structural MRI, EEG and MEG will be taught in the context of higher-order perceptual and cognitive processes. A comprehension of how the brain constructs abstract models of the external world including object recognition, spatial representation, planning processes and the role of consciousness will be gained.
