Cognitive Neuroscience Case Creation

Length: 6+ Hours

Discipline: Psychology

Level: Advanced (majors)

Author: Miller, Antoinette

This “build a case” problem provides students with the opportunity to create their own case study from the ground up. Student working groups are assigned a particular condition that may result in brain damage (such as a stroke) and then build a teaching case in which a number of brain areas may be damaged and functions affected. Students must provide background information on the “patient”, the brain areas affected (both before and after damage), useful means to assess brain function (such as neuroimaging or neuropsychological assessment), as well as a prognosis for the “patient.”
