Time: Tuesday, 8.15 am to 10:00 am
Location: To announced, check the UZH Vorlesungsverzeichnis

First Lecture: Tuesday 18.9.2018

This course focuses on the treatment of information in primate cortex. We will learn about the sensory, motor, and cognitive systems that underlie human behavior. In addition to the lectures, we have one hour of exercises each week. These will consist in readings you have to do, as well as practical excercises. You will be informed about these requirements in the course of the lectures. There will be a final exam that covers the material covered in the lectures, and the additional readings given as exercises.

If you'd like to consult a good text book, I recommend: "Principles of Neural Science", edited by Kandel, Schwartz and Jessell, 4th edition.

Language: English (but you can speak german...)

If you have a question, just contact me ( (please note that I will be away from Sept. 4 until Sept. 30, 2018)!

The exam is a multiple-choice written exam that takes place on the last day of the course: Tue Dec. 18, 2018.
