This course intends to provide knowledge on the theoretical principles and practical applications of psychological research methods in general and neurocognitive methods in particular. It will cover predominantly important steps of conducting quantitative research such as research questions, the design of experiments, validity, types of data, and reporting results. Various technologies for measuring brain structure and function and the limitations of these techniques will also be covered, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), event-related potentials (ERPs), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). In addition, eyetracking measures and psychophysiological measures such as skin conductance response will be covered. The application of those methods will be illustrated with examples from various cognitive abilities (e.g., emotion understanding, memory). Wherever possible, the course will allow for hands-on experience with the methods (cf. tutorial). The goal for students is to be able to understand the methods covered and critically evaluate research that uses them.
