Inhoud vak

Human behavior and mental life cannot be fully understood without
understanding the role of emotions. However, until recently emotional
processes have been studied in isolation from basic cognitive processes,
such as attention, perception, memory and language. The present
course will present an integrative view of cognitive and emotional
processes based on the recent behavioral and neuroscientific evidence.
The topics that are covered will include the influence of emotional
information on perception, allocation of visual attention, awareness,
memory encoding and decision making, the role of emotional states on
perception, attention and memory, as well practical applications, such
as cognitive behavioral therapy and lie detection. The students will
also have hands-on experience and will conduct an experiment, analyze
the data and write a brief report.
