|COURSE DEFINITION||The goal of this course is to make students familiar with the basics of neuropsychology. Students will be introduced to brain and its functions, the properties of nervous system, structure and function of neurons. Students will also be informed about how to measure neuropsychological attributes. The structures in the nervous system and its correlates with behavior will be explored. Moreover, artificial models of neural networks will also be introduced to study the differences and similarities between biological and computational systems.
