Summary

The modular course is devoted to the study of the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying cognitive processes of sensorimotor integration, the columnar organization of cortical neurons and the simulation of perceptual processes.

The course consists of several modules, each of them focuses on the unresolved issues, the contradictions in the current data and their solutions. The course reviews the basic principles of bioethics (replacementreduction, improvement of technology of the experiment) and results of the program The Decade of The Brain (1990-2000).

Particular attention will be paid to technologies of individual research projects within the framework of electronic teaching materials developed by a team of authors of the Southern Federal University (SFU Development Programme 2007-2010)

Language: presentation slides in English, lectures in Russian

Duration(days): 
3
Learning outcomes: 
During practical classes students will gain skills of the neurophysiological and psychophysical experiments, analyzing results, using of electronic databases of experimental data (recording of neural activity in cerebellar cortex and visual cortex, recording eye movements, results of simulation, mapping the main components of MSP, etc.)
