Mind and brain stream

This stream combines cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and cognitive neuroscience.

Cognitive psychology looks for relationships between observable aspects of the environment and individuals’ behaviours, to learn about the nature of mental processes.

Neuropsychology studies the relationship between structures of the brain and psychological functioning.

Cognitive Neuroscience combines aspects of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and biopsychology. 

Courses in this stream will help you better understand and appreciate the great scientific puzzle of mind and brain.
