Course Descriptions


It is the responsibility of each participant to acquire the required reading of the courses selected. There is no library in Xylocastro.

Given that a great number of the terms used in the Neurosciences in general and Neuropsychology in particular are of Greek origin, we are planning to offer a Greek language course during the summer school. The course will include instruction in the etymology of terms of Greek origin that are commonly used in the areas of "memory" and "amnesia" as well as instruction in the conversational modern Greek. The course will be taught during the late afternoon hours (2 to 3 times a week) by Marina Tzakosta (M.A. in General Linguistics, University of Crete, Greece) who is currently a third year Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics of the University of Leiden/ Holland Institute of Generative Linguistics, The Netherlands. Those interested in it, please indicate your interest in the appropriate section of the application form.
