The course provides basic knowledge about the neuroscience of clinical psychiatry and neurology. Students will learn the basic pathophysiology of important disorders of the brain and how the brain reacts to these challenges. Participating students will learn (a) how alterations of different cognitive systems (e.g., emotion regulation, language, reward) result in mental disorders, (b) how these alterations can be studied using neuroscience methods, (c) how this knowledge may translate into therapeutic applications. Particular emphasis will be placed on practical aspects of clinical neuroscience, e.g. by demonstrating the examination of a patient.
