Obiettivi formativi

The course is aimed at providing students with the most update information on the interaction between biological mechanisms and cognitive processes that lead to complex behaviors. In particular, during the course it will be analyzed i) the interaction between emotions and feelings, describing the most recent major theories, with particular attention to fear and anxiety, and to the reward and pleasure; ii) the cognitive processes underlying decision-making processes and the formation of memories. In the meantime, the course will provide information about the major disorders related to these functions (depression, anxiety disorders and post -traumatic stress, learning disorders, compulsive behavior and substance of abuse).
