Reading Group in Cognitive neurosciences: advances in neuroscience of aging a.y. 2021/22
The reading group will consist of class readings and guided group discussions, covering crucial issues on the most recent advances in neuroscience of aging. Neuroimaging, clinical and neuropsychological finding will be discussed in order to shed light on the physiological and pathological changes occurring in aged populations. Both cognitive neuroscience and clinical neuropsychology perspectives will be used to explore structural and functional modifications of brain networks and their behavioral manifestations. Practical sessions will foster the discussion on novel experimental approaches and treatment options to modulate negative effects of physiological changes in normal aging or cover with cognitive deficits in neurodegenerative diseases.
Specific materials will be provided during the course.
The evaluation will be based on the participation to meetings and guided discussion.
