The language of the course is English, so we expect a fluent level and the ability to follow and participate in class.
This summer course will give you an overview of the crescent field of consumer neuroscience. Moreover, we will explore the applications of neurosciences in different fields such as neuroeconomics and neuromarketing. The objective of the current course is for you to be able to properly understand the potential and limitations of these applications and be able to develop innovative ways of using neuroscientific techniques in different contexts. The course includes lectures and workshops during four days of intensive learning. Finally, we expect you to be able to come up with your own research proposal using neuroscientific methods in the market.
