Cíle předmětu
The aim of this course is to provide students with the knowledge in the fields of affective and social neuroscience. First, the brain anatomy, physiology and methods of investigation will be outlined in order to further discuss topics such as various emotion-related neural circuits, neurobiology of emotional memory and social modulation of emotions. The students will also be presented with the contemporary views of emotions from the neuroscientific perspective. All topics covered will reflect also potential implications for various psychopathological symptomatology continuums (e.g. anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction etc.) from the psychologist´s perspective.
Výstupy z učení
After completing the course, a student will be able to: - broadly describe the brain structure and function and understand the methods to assess them - compare current neuroscientifically-driven theories of emotion - identify brain areas and circuits underlying various emotions - discuss the power of social modulation of emotions as represented in the brain - discuss current issues in the field of emotion research - apply the knowledge from the course in order to better understand various psychopathological continuums and the possible ways of treating them
