Hinweise zum Modul
Enrolment in Master's programme Neurocognitive Psychology or other programs related to the field (e.g. neuroscience, computer science, physics etc.).
We strongly recommend to take either psy170, psy270, psy280, or psy220 to gain methodological competencies (EEG, fMRI, TBS, HCI) that are needed for most practical projects and Master's theses!
last lecture in summer term
The module will be evaluated with an oral exam (max. 20 min).
Required active participation for gaining credits:
max. 24 programming exercises in the seminar
participation in discussions on other presentations
attendance of at least 70% in the seminar (use attendance sheet that will be handed out in the beginning of the term).
Goals of module:
The goal of the module is to provide students with basic skills required to plan, implement and
evaluate brain computer interfaces as devices for human computer interaction. BCIs are an
ideal showcase as they fully span the interdisciplinary field of HCI design, implementation and
evaluation. Importantly, classical BCI-methods can be used for modern data-driven basic neuroscience.
The module is designed as an "enabler course", meaning that ideally students should be able to understand and start independent studies into the BCI-methods. Therefore, it goes into depth instead of breadth. Good programming skills and some active knowledge of high school maths is strongly advised to maximize the learning outcome.
