Cognitive Neuroscience: Perception and Action

he module covers the theoretical foundations and practical applications of neurocognitive processes in the fields of perception and action. The neurophysiology of cortical sensory processing across all sensory modalities (vision, somatosensory, auditory, olfaction, gustatory) will be discussed. Theoretical foundations and important empirical findings (e.g., general and biological psychology) are taught using selected examples. Students will get an overview of the use of selected (neuro-)cognitive methods in interaction with (computational) process models and their practical applications. Central theoretical concepts, empirical findings and practical applications of (neuro-)cognitive methods in the fields of cognitive neuroscience will be discussed. Based on this knowledge, students develop specific questions (e.g. questions on object recognition or decision making), to combine these with selected (neuro-)cognitive methods (e.g. ratings, reaction time measurement, oculo- and pupillometry, EEG, fMRI, fNIRS, non-invasive neuromodulation methods/tDCS/rTMS) according to the principle "methods must fit the questions". A focus is on the evaluation and interpretation of empirical investigations.
