M-PSI/02 - PSYCHOBIOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY

Period

Sem. 1A dal Sep 26, 2022 al Nov 5, 2022.

Learning objectives

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.  

Prerequisites and basic notions

Being a first year course, first semester, there are no specific prerequisites other than those required for access to the degree course

Stage e Tirocini

Le attività che ci si aspetta il/la tirocinante curriculare in Scienze psicologiche per la formazione svolga presso gli enti che lo/la ospitano riguardano principalmente attività di affiancamento nei seguenti ambiti:
  1. Formazione, sviluppo, innovazione e gestione delle risorse umane;
  2. Orientamento scolastico e professionale;
  3. Ricerca, selezione e valutazione psicologica del personale.
Sono ritenuti ambiti adeguati le diverse agenzie per il lavoro, le agenzie di formazione, le agenzie di orientamento, le società di consulenza e tutti gli enti, le associazioni, le aziende, le imprese e, in generale, le organizzazioni che al loro interno operano attività di ricerca, selezione e valutazione psicologica del personale, attività di formazione, sviluppo, innovazione e gestione delle risorse umane e attività di orientamento scolastico e professionale. Anche enti di ricerca e Università dove si conducono studi e indagini su questi temi sono ambiti ritenuti adeguati.
Lo/la studente/essa sarà seguito/a da un tutor accademico e da un tutor aziendale. Alle attività di tirocinio sono attribuiti 9 CFU (pari a 225 ore).
Il tutor aziendale deve essere un laureato in psicologia anche non iscritto all’albo.

Linee Guida per lo Svolgimento dei Tirocini Curriculari


Per altre informazioni in merito alle procedure per svolgere il tirocinio, è possibile contattare l'Ufficio Stage e Tirocini.
