Prerequisites: Sensory Physiology In this lecture and its follow-up Higher Cognitive Functions & Motor System in the summer terms, we discuss the physiological substrate of cognitive processes, emphasizing their relation to behavior. On your journey through the brain, we will meet object recognition, attention, decision processes, movement planning, and consciousness. Bias will be on physiological mechanisms, but due attention to clinical aspects, theoretical analysis, and information-theoretic measures will be given. This course is intended for Bachelor students in their third term and beyond. In my experience, the material is somewhat advanced and of interest to master students as well.
