Last update: Ing. Lenka Křikavová (24.05.2016)
You’ll learn about mechanisms of higher cognitive functions of the brain – learning and memory, sensory
information processing, decision making, etc. The main impact of the course is on experimental neuroscience
across its cellular and systems levels, and both on its basic and most recent achievements. Despite we’ll always
look for the relevant clinical projections, the primary focus is scientific. The seminar will mainly build on your
previous knowledges in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology.
