Students will be guided through the mathematical tools useful for University physics. The course will consist of both theoretical and practical physics education, allowing students to immediately put these mathematical tools to use. In addition, students will be guided through designing and executing their own experiments in physics.
This course presents a thematic overview of current and future global issues in natural resource management. Students will develop an understanding of stressors to the environment through the exploration of social, cultural, and economic issues.
Students will examine the most influential philosophic discussions around animals in society; conventional discourse around human-animal relationships; intersections between speciesism and other forms of oppression; and the politics of various animal justice movements.
This course provides an overview of modern health challenges in Europe and how they are embraced by a variety of stakeholders: policy makers, researchers, practitioners and the civil society. The course focuses on, among others, health in Europe and the perspective of European health.
Mass spectrometry is a chemical analysis technique that is experiencing an explosion in popularity and real-world applications. This course provides the fundamentals of mass spectrometry and gives hands-on experience in using a cutting-edge mass spectrometer used for medical and biochemical research.
This course will give students an overview of the crescent field of consumer neuroscience and explore the applications of neurosciences in different fields, such as neuroeconomics and neuromarketing. At the end of the course, students will understand the potential and limitations of these applications and be able to develop innovative ways of using neuroscientific techniques in different contexts.
A well-written grant proposal is one that provides relevant information to the reader when they expect it. This course will give students tools for building that relationship and provide opportunities to practice these tools.
Effective communication has become essential in the modern, internet-driven world. Scientific communication is no exception. This course aims to provide students with the fundamentals to be effective scientific communicators and will cover the modern scientific communication process including the presentation of findings and data, and writing scientific papers.
Climate change poses serious challenges for humans around the world. This course allows students to, among others, examine some key impacts (human health, biodiversity loss) of climate change on human societies and natural systems, and explore climate mitigation and climate adaptation strategies.
This course focuses on fundamental and applied empirical brain research using brain stimulation techniques (non-invasive brain stimulation). During lectures by international experts, students will learn about the basics of brain stimulation (TMS, TES), state-of-the-art multimodal applications and invasive brain stimulation approaches.
This course will provide an update about the field of psychedelic medicine based on preclinical and clinical work conducted by researchers worldwide. Students will also be stimulated to think about the pros and cons of psychedelics in the treatment of disorders (such as depression, addiction and PTSD).
Where does the drive to pursue and persevere originate? Do we control our choices? This course draws from a range of theoretical, clinical, and methodological approaches to explore key questions such as these. Students will examine the unconscious patterns that drive human behaviour and our choices.
This course is designed around the data science lifecycle to show the techniques for handling a data science project. Students will be exposed to basic programming skills in Python and learn how to select, clean, analyse, visualise and interpret data.
