Imparting basic knowledge and relations of neurobiology. Transfer achievement: Preparing scientific records from the results of independent experiments.
In its first part, the lecture (4 H/W) covers the molecular and cellular fundamentals of neurobiology, the electrical processes in nervous cells, the organization and development of the nervous system, its function explained by simple circuits as well as the sensorimotor integration underlying any behaviour.
In the seminar (1 H/W), individual subjects of the lecture are consolidated. In the subsequent block laboratory course (6 H/W), this theoretical knowledge is verified under real-world conditions by simple experiments related to the subjects dealt with in the lecture. Unobjectionable scientific minutes are to be prepared of the experiments and the individual results are to be presented in a seminar paper.
