Upon successful completion of this course, students will have thought about and discussed in depth scientific, social and ethical aspects of communication in and about neuroscience. In particular, participants practice critical reading of neuroscience literature, learn about the scientific publication process and discuss science communication to the general public.

Modulinhalte

The overall goal of critical discussion of neuroscientific results in a scientific, social and ethical context requires preparation and active participation both before (Stud.IP wiki) and during the weekly sessions. Each participant is responsible for the preparation and moderation of at least one session in a group of 2-3 students. For passing the module, additional active participation is required in at least 10 of the seminar sessions.  The specific papers and topics that are discussed vary, but typically cover:

  • How to find literature?
  • How to read different types of scientific papers: Classic papers, review papers, perspective papers, recent original papers?
  • Publication process, Authorship and impact metrics
  • Alternative publication paths and data sharing in neuroscience
  • Science communication for the general public and on social media
  • Face-to-face scientific communication
Literaturempfehlungen

List of published papers, as well as online resources for preparation will be selected by the teachers and participants and announced via Stud.IP.
