Comment/Description

This introductory course is a mixture of lecture, seminar and practical exercises and will emphasise the importance of psychophysics as a central method in human perceptual and sensorimotor research. Beyond gaining an understanding of the underlying theoretical principles, students should also be able to critically assess published studies and design and conduct their own psychophysical experiments by the end of the course. The course will be taught in Englisch.
