Cursusdoelen
At the end of the course the student is able to:
 
  1. understand the concepts of 'memory' and 'attention' and their neurobiological substrates. Specifically, the neural pathways and biochemical mechanisms that implement regulatory top-down signals as well as bottom-up activations that drive attention and memory are elucidated. Pronounced emphasis is put on the interactions between attention and perception, attention (or intention) and the motor system, attention and (working) memory, attention and emotion, perception and memory (e.g., perceptual learning), (procedural) memory and the motor system, and emotion and memory (e.g., amygdala-hippocampus interaction);
  2. present his/her literature review of part of the topics of the course;
  3. write a short essay on part of the topics of the course.

Course descriptionTopics in Memory and Attention research, especially those concerning the interface of attention and memory (e.g., working memory and the control of selective attention), as well as the interfaces between memory/ attention and other domains (perception, action, emotion). The main emphasis is on underlying neurobiological processes, as revealed in human and animal models.
