Information


This is a bi-annual course entitled Linear and Non Linear Methodologies in Physiology and Psycho-Physiology.


This is a  distance learning course for graduate students and scholars in psychology, medicine, and psychiatry.


The course is aimed to provide high professional competence to cardiologists, physiologists, psychiatrists and neurologists in advanced and specialised fields.


The course is divided in four semesters with exams and a final dissertation.

 

Overview of the course program

The First Year

First  semester:

a) Principles of Physiology, Clinical Psycho-Physiology and Psycho-somatic Disorders (Antonio Federici, Department of Biomedical Sciences and Oncology - Section of Human Physiology, University of Bari – Italy

b) Non Linear Methodologies and Complex Systems Theory (Elio Conte - Course Director)

Second semester:

c) Recurrence Quantification Analysis (RQA): a specialized course on RQA methodology and its clinical applications ( Fernanda Strozzi- Università L. Cattaneo-Castellanza-Varese)

d) Analysis of Heart Rate Variability by RQA ( Alessandro Giuliani- Istituto Superiore di Sanità – ISS - Rome-Italy)


The Second Year

First  semester:

e) Non Linear Methodologies in Psychology and Psychiatry (Franco Orsucci, Department of Clinical Psychology, University College London, UK)

f) Analysis of Variability of R-R intervals by the CZF method with applications in physiology, psycho-physiology and psychiatry (Elio Conte, Antonio Federici).


Second semester:

The second semester of the second year will be devoted only to research.
Students will perform training and experimental  application of the non linear methodologies on some different fields of clinical interest and thus they will start  research on a selected field of interest  in order to  realize a final dissertation..
