Presentación - Neurociencia Cognitiva


Cognitive Neuroscience arose from the interdisciplinary venture of such different areas as cognitive psychology, neurophysiology, linguistics, clinical neuropsychology, among others, and the technological advances in the field of neuroimaging and computation. This interdisciplinary venture aims to discover the brain mechanisms that underlie psychological processes, such as language.

The objective of the programme is to train researchers in the area of Cognitive Neuroscience with the purpose of making progress in frontier research and to transfer knowledge to the areas of Health and Education. Particular attention will be paid to interdisciplinary theoretical training and to advanced neuroimaging techniques.

The programme involves several research teams working on the following topics: Language and reading; Neurobiology of multilingualism; Neurodegeneration and language disorders; and Advanced methods in Cognitive Neuroscience.

Participation in a prior BCBL (Basque Centre on Cognition, Brain & Language) selection process is compulsory. Further information on the documents to provide and deadlines at:
