Methods in Cognitive neuroscience: fMRI, EEG, TMS, DTI (a.a. 2019/20)

Programma

The course aims to provide a general introduction to different methodological approaches used in cognitive neurosciences to investigate the neural bases of cognitive processing, and particularly: a) functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI, VBM, DTI); b) electroencephalography (EEG); neurostimulation (Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) with neuro-navigation). Each of these techniques will be addressed by coupling a theoretical introduction with a hands-on approach based on real data and/or practical sessions in the lab.
