PSYCH-MA-PFM-05 Advanced psychological methods: methods in behavioral neuroscience


Winter semester: Dr. Dimitris Voudouris      

Summer semester: Prof. Dr. Karl Gegenfurtner


  • Students learn new cutting edge methods for measuring and interpreting human body and eye movements.


  • Winter semester - Body movement analysis: The recording and analysis of human movement has a central role in several domains. From understanding if a hip surgery was successful to making football players in video games move like real humans to basic research that examines perception and action. In this course, you will learn how to record and analyze human movement and what human movement can tell us about human perception. You will even get the opportunity to reconstruct and see your own movements.
  • Summer semester - Eye tracking: Where people look is usually what they pay attention to. Modern eye tracking techniques allow to measure the gaze of observers very precisely in the laboratory, but also when they are interacting with the real world. So where do they look when walking, riding a bike, or playing sports, and why? In this course, we will teach you how to find out, by measuring and analyzing eye movements.
