The lecture covers the basics of systemic neuroscience with a focus on propcessing in sensory systems, the plasticity of the nervous system and the mechanisms underlying cognitive pro-cessing. In the seminar, topics related to the lectures of the week are covered in more depth.
The exercise immediately follows the lecture and the seminar. By experimenting with each other, the students deepen their knowledge in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and hearing science. The students analyze their own data (incl. statistics) an present these in a written report.
