    Description

    This course will explore the interactions of the different senses, i.e. vision, audition, touch, proprioception, vestibular system, olfaction and gustation. We will read research articles on how the different senses influence each other in perception, behaviour and in the brain. We will also explore what happens to perception when a sense is lacking or is impaired, e.g. during blindness and deafness, and how the brain plastically rewires after sensory loss.

    The course will have the format of a journal club with in-depth discussions of multisensory research articles. Each student will present 1-2 research articles across the semester. The non-presenting students will have to submit questions on the discussed article in advance of the session. Regular attendance in the course is mandatory for successful completion. Assessment of this course will consist of a recorded presentation of a research article that hasn’t been discussed during the course, and that each student can choose (upon my approval).
