  • Overview

    The module provides an introduction to what we currently understand about the processes of object, word
    and face recognition, attention, memory and language. These processes have all been studied using
    experimental and neuropsychological observations, and computational modelling, and consideration will be
    given to all these different kinds of method during the course. As well as hearing about past research in these
    areas, and experiencing demonstrations of neuropsychological and computational techniques, students will
    have the opportunity to design, conduct and report upon original project work. The course aims to teach the
    subject of human cognition, with particular emphasis on methodological issues, reinforced by experience of
    original project work. Classes include lectures and seminars.
