The module focuses on auditory neuroscience, molecular and cellular neurobiology.

Development, anatomy and function of the auditory system (cochlea to cortex), classification, molecular causes and inheritance of auditory disorders, investigation of these disorders in animal models, insights into possibilities of treatment/therapy

The seminar will focus on possibilities of treatment options in the field of auditory rehabilitation. In a flipped classroom, students will shortly present and discuss different approaches.
