Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Contents

Preparation of experimental materials, specialized experimental equipment and related software (i.e., EEG),analyzing and correlating neuronal activity with behavior using specific software, interpretation of experimental results.
Experimental design for human and animal studies, participant selection and recruitment, development and preparation of experimental materials, specialized experimental equipment and related software (e.g., EEG, TMS), correlating neuronal activity with behavior, interpretation of experimental results.
Group work on a practical research project (e.g. computational neuroscience, electrophysiological recordings, MEG for structural and functional analysis) under the supervision of one of the teaching staff.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

On successfully completing the module students will be able to,

 recognize and define basic and some more advanced methods in research related to Cognitive Neuroscience

 transfer the acquired knowledge to related experimental designs

 prepare and conduct an experiment in the laboratory; apply practical research skills such as EEG

 summarize and present the results obtained with these specific research methods
