The aim of this Honours Class is to provide a comprehensive view on how the brain functions. The invited faculty consists of renowned experts in the field of cognitive neurosciences. The topics that will be discussed range from the definition of cognition, through the coming into being of cognition at the beginning and its decline at the end of the life cycle. Aspects of cognition to be discussed comprise language, consciousness, sleep and dreaming, effects of stress, cognitive enhancement, cognition and economics, and brain-computer interfaces. This Honours Class is supported by the Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition (LIBC) and several leaders of this institute will be involved in its programming.
