Seminar: Methods in Electrophysiology

This interdisciplinary seminar deals with the electrophysiology of the human brain and presents the research conducted at the Institute of Geophysics (Michael von Papen), the Department of Neurobiology/Animal Physiology and Research Center Jülich (Silvia Daun), and the Institute of Clinical Neuroscience and Medical Psychology in Düsseldorf (Esther Florin). The talks cover methods used to analyze and interpret electrophysiological data such as EEG/MEG and local field potentials (LFP).

Interested students are always welcome.
