Objectives

To see! Name! Note! How do we get to know the world around us? The course presents the most important the-ories, research methods and results of the three essential fields of cognitive science with an explicit emphasis on neuroscience data and the applicability of knowledge. Based on what techniques and data do we get to know the function of our brain more and more accurately - what are the advantages and disadvantages of these methods? Do we really see as much as we do in our environment? Is it true that we see the same without colors? Where and how does our brain add the third dimension? Is there a connection between brain development and lan-guage formation? How are words and sentences understood? Is speech comprehension possible without speech production? Why do we forget? Which nervous system structures are involved in the formation of memory trac-es? How can memory disorders be diagnosed and what kind of life can we live without memories? Can we trust what we see, what we remember? You can get answers to such exciting questions and learn about three different areas at the same time, while getting to know the essential connection points and moments.
