University of Essex
Cognitive neuroscience is concerned with the scientific study of biological substrates underlying cognition, with a specific focus on the neural substrates of mental processes, and addresses questions of how psychological functions are produced by the brain; it is a branch of both psychology and neuroscience, overlapping with disciplines like physiological psychology, cognitive psychology and neuropsychology; cognitive neuroscience relies upon theories in cognitive science coupled with evidence from neuropsychology and computational modelling; our course gives students a grounding in the scientific investigation of the neural mechanisms underlying human behaviour, with a particular reference to cognitive processes; they are taught the theoretical and biological foundations of cognitive science, and undertake advanced statistical training; a central feature is our instruction covering the physiological bases and practical applications of cognitive neuroscience techniques; this core knowledge is integrated with understanding in related areas: Experimental psychology; cognitive neuropsychology; computational modelling.
