The module covers the theoretical foundations and practical applications of neurocognitive processes in the fields of perception, learning, memory and decision making as well as the application of neurocognitive processes in order to address research questions in the fields previously mentioned. The topics will be analyzed in depth based on selected examples from the literature.

After completing this module, students will have expanded their knowledge of the fields of general neuro-cognitive psychology as well as have furthered their understanding of the processes underlying learning and memory. Furthermore, they will have acquired theoretical and methodological knowledge of the study of these processes, especially with regard to their role in decision-making, including computer simulation models and neurocognitive processes.
