Target Students

Students at Master’s and doctoral levels in psychology, cognitive science, speech science, musicology, neuroscience, linguistics, educational and learning sciences and biology are encouraged to apply.


The human brain and its ability to adapt to the demands of the environment is at the core of our course. This course is useful for students who wish to gain knowledge about the most recent developments in auditory cognitive neuroscience in particular. In this framework, the 2017 course is focused on learning and developing brain.

The course programme focuses on brain functions in the framework of neuroplasticity, including lectures on cognition, emotion and social neuroscience. The course consists of tutorials on brain research methods and lectures about current topics. There are several demonstrations on practical laboratory work with modern brain imaging techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The students also have an opportunity to introduce their projects and research outcomes in poster sessions.

Learning objectives

The course will enable students to understand the theoretical principles, promises and limitations of modern brain research methods. The students will gain hands-on experience in data acquisition and analyses. They will also learn about the most recent advances in using these methods in order to better understand human cognition and learning particularly in the domains of language and music.

Course format and teaching methods

Lectures, team work, hands-on training with brain research methods, poster sessions, and learning diary.

Means and criteria of assessment

Learning diary; Pass/Fail
