Despite the phenomenal advances we have reached in our understanding of the nervous system, many fundamental questions concerning the relation between the brain and the mind remain unanswered. Examples of these questions include: How are memories stored and retrieved? How is sensory input converted to subjective perception? Is the brain a general-purpose learning machine or a toolbox of innate and specialized processors? This program reviews the methods, findings, and controversies of the cognitive neuroscience and psychology. A comparative and developmental perspective will be adopted to study the theories of human cognition and brain evolution, using data obtained from animals and young children.

Neural Science
The juncture of biology and psychology, of brain and behavior... This course provides a comprehensive coverage, from the molecular level right up to human conscious experience, of the relationship between the structural and the physiological mechanisms of the brain and of the nervous system with the psychological reality of the mind.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck

Language Acquisition
This course explores the question “How do children manage to learn language?” It introduces classic and contemporary theories of language acquisition. Topics include early speech perception; word learning; acquisition of phonology, morphology, and syntax; development of pragmatic and metalinguistic knowledge; and developmental change in language comprehension and production.
Academic Supervisor : Philomena Wavinya Ndambuki

Natural Intelligent Systems
This course explains that all natural intelligent systems are biological in nature and their work is not always understood in purely computational terms. A biological system must be understood in terms of its environment, ecological niche, and evolutionary history.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Human Consciousness
This course examines the human consciousness. The brain appears to be a complicated organ that register and channel consciousness rather than produce it. Consciousness, the subjective experience of an inner self; could be a phenomenon forever beyond the reach of neuroscience. Even a detailed knowledge of the brain's workings and the neural correlation of consciousness may fail to explain how or why human beings have self-aware minds.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Cognitive Neuroscience
This course examines the neurological basis of cognition. It studies brain-injured patients, neurophysiological research in animals, normal cognitive processes in humans, and non-invasive behavioral and physiological techniques. It examines perception and object recognition, attention, language, motor control and executive functions, and the neural systems involved in learning and remembering different types of information.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Psychology of Perception
This course deals with the theories of perception, perceptual phenomena, and the complex process by which information is gathered by our sensory organs and converted to a subjective precept. It focus on the current findings of neuroscience and psychology, with emphasis on sensation, attention, meaning, and structural concepts.
Academic Supervisor : Fernando Miralles

Psychology of Language
This course discusses the psychological processes underlying the use of language. It explains how these principles are applied to linguistic development and organization, including language structure, speech perception, language acquisition. It also explores the psychological processes underlying comprehension and language production and examines the relation between brain and language and the species-specificity of the human language.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Learning & Memory Development
This course reviews the principles of learning and memory by examining various learning theories, memory research, perception, information processing, and problem-solving. How are memories stored and retrieved? How is sensory input converted to subjective perception? Is the brain a general-purpose learning machine or a toolbox of innate, specialized processors?
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Cognitive Development
This course focuses on the theories and models of learning as applied to the fields of education, cognitive psychology, and artificial intelligence. It reviews different theoretical orientations to learning and memory, metacognition, analogy, language acquisition, reading, writing, mathematics, concept learning, skill acquisition, and self regulated learning.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Cognitive Psychology
This course deals with the study of human cognition: the methods, findings, and controversies of cognitive neuroscience and psychology. It adopts a comparative and developmental perspective throughout using data from animals and young children to theories of human cognition and brain evolution. It includes perception, attention, memory, knowledge representation, language, problem solving, and reasoning.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez
