Rapid and reliable processing of sensory information is fundamental for all living organisms. This process does not only rely on specialized sensory organs but also requires complex neuronal circuits to integrate and interpret the incoming signals. This course aims to shed light on the basic principles underlying sensory perception and encoding, reaching from basic anatomy to comprehensive network activity analysis.
We have invited experts who will not only provide an overview of the visual and auditory systems, but also share their current research.
