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!

Skills to be acquired in this module
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. Moreover, BCI-techniques can be used for modern data-driven basic neuroscience.
The module combines a lecture on the theoretical foundations of the most important techniques
with a seminar/hands on course in which students learn to implement the BCI-processing steps
on real neurophysiological data and further elaborate specific subtopics.
Competencies: ++ Understanding of the foundations of statistical learning techniques
