|Skills to be acquired in this module||
This module provides students without any prior knowledge in biological psychology with basic knowledge on the neurobiology of sensory and cognitive functions which is especially relevant for later modules on brain-computer interfaces. It therefore provides an introduction to basic concepts of neurobiological foundations of sensory, motor and cognitive functions.
The students will be able to understand basic concepts of neurobiological foundations of cognition and present these to fellow students of different backgrounds:
The students will learn to present and discuss scientific findings
The students will learn to interact in a group
The students will be able to assess their own knowledge and understanding in the context of an interedisciplinary group
The lecture includes the neuroanatomy of different sensory systems such as vision and audition. motor systems and higher cognitive functions. The seminar will focus on lecture topics based on the book chapters. These contents will be acquired in group work.
