  • Objectives


    The Curricular Unit (CU) has the following objectives: - LO1: creation of competences at the level of methodologies and research methods required to carry out the dissertation. In order to meet this objective, the concepts that allow methodological support of the work leading to the dissertation will be taught. - LO2: presentation, discussion and reflection on reference studies through thematic seminars dedicated to cybertherapy, neurocognitive rehabilitation and advanced techniques. - LO3: preparation of the dissertation. In order to meet these objectives, students must develop an R&D project that ensures that all phases of an empirical study are observed, namely the selection of a theoretical model and formulation of hypotheses according to it, choice of measures, data collection, analysis and writing of the dissertation.
