The course will constitute 12 meetings of two hours each. During the first
hour we will watch together an online lecture by a prominent neuroscientist.
In the second hour we will introduce and discuss a relevant paper.
Each student will be responsible for one meeting: selecting a relevant
paper, presenting it, and writing a short report on the subject.
- Presentation: Only the PDF of the paper can be used, no powerpoints.
- Short report: The report is in a format of a review of a paper. Some helpful links are here: review sample #1, review sample #2.
Additionally, all students are expected to read the papers prior to the
meeting, and participate in the discussion.
Course will be given in English.
Grading will be based primarily on the meeting for which the student is
responsible, and also on the participation throughout the semester.
