Aims of the School:

There are several aims for this school. The first is to introduce young Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows to the broad field of cognition, taken as a general model to understand high-order brain functions. The second is to provide a general picture of some main cognitive disorders that follow lesion of cortical areas and/or subcortical neural centers, as characteristic of certain brain diseases. The third is to offer hands-on activities on a different aspect of experimental and neuropsychological aspects of cognition.  The overall goal is to expose students to a crucial field of modern neuroscience that is not so widely represented in Africa, to create a memory reservoir to be used for expanding their culture as future basic or clinical scientists in the field.

Description of the School:

The School will consist of two modules, the first one on “Neural Substrates of Cognitive Functions” (September 2-7, 2019), the second on “Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology in the lifespan: from theory to practice” (September 9-14, 2019).

During the scientific sessions, 16 Faculty members will present and discuss their work with the students. About 25 students will participate. Only African citizens are entitled to apply. Students will be sub-divided in three working groups (WGs), that will be involved in different activities under the supervision of Faculty members. The results of such activities will be presented to all participants at the end of the school.  The WGs will also formulate some minimal questions to be asked to Faculty members after each talk, to boost the discussion on the themes presented. Each working group will also participate in the laboratory hand-on activities programmed at the host-institution of the school and present the results of their previous studied during two poster sessions.

In the second module, beyond the lectures offered by the speakers and the relative discussion, students will be shown the main tools used for the diagnostic classification of patients within the various neuropsychological syndromes and some hints will be given on the rehabilitation techniques used for the functional recovery of cognitive disorders. In addition, a movie of case-reports of such patients will be shown and discussed.  In the last day of the school students and faculties will be hosted at the Alzheimer’s Center of Rabat by one Faculty member, who is Director of the center, for a full immersion into the real world of the clinical approach to dementia.
