Cognitive neuroscience

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Viktorija Radotic

Cognitive neuroscience is the scientific field that is concerned with the study of the biological processes and aspects that underline cognition, with a specific focus on the neural connections in the brain which are involved in mental processes. It addresses the questions of how cognitive activities are affected or controlled by neural circuits in the brain.

This module looks at how the brain enables the mind. The module includes resources for KS2 through to KS5.

We will explore

  • An introduction to how the brain works
  • An introduction to brain mapping
  • What are neurons?
  • What are synapses?
  • What is neural communication?

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans – KS2 to KS5
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class exercises and activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
