Learning outcomes

General aims: 1) Knowing and undertanding the psychological theories that explain the fundamental processes related to the functioning and adaptation of the individual to the physical and social environment; 2) Applying the theories related to the functioning of individuals, groups and organizations to the understanding and analysis of learning phenomena and of personal and social change; Specific training objectives: The course aims at providing the theoretical and methodological framework necessary to understand the neurobiological correlates of human behavior and cognitive functions. Through the study of the main techniques and methods to investigate the neuronal activity (EEG, fMRI and TMS) and human behavior, the teaching also aims at providing the tools to evaluate and analyze the functional changes in the individual. At the end of the course, the student should prove the ability to link the main biological and neuronal mechanisms to the functional and adaptation processes of the individual to the physical and social environment.
