IBRO-UM5 Advanced School on Cognition and its Disorders
September 2, 2019 - September 16, 2019
There are several aims for this school. The first is to introduce young Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows to the broad field of cognition, taken as a general model to understand high-order brain functions. The second is to provide a general picture of some main cognitive disorders that follow lesion of cortical areas and/or subcortical neural centers, as characteristic of certain brain diseases. The third is to offer hands-on activities on a different aspect of experimental and neuropsychological aspects of cognition. The overall goal is to expose students to a crucial field of modern neuroscience that is not so widely represented in Africa, to create a memory reservoir to be used for expanding their culture as future basic or clinical scientists in the field.
