“Cognitive neuroscience – or the riddling case of who knew too much!” is the title of the SFB 1280’s invitation to the Alfried Krupp School Laboratory at the Ruhr-Universität. How thinking looks like in the EEG and what the measurements show about a person’s thoughts can be experienced by school classes from secondary level II in exciting experiments. The class is available in German and English. Registration is open, courses should be possible again from mid-February. Corona updates are best read directly on the website of the school laboratory >> .
The Alfried Krupp-Schülerlaborinvites you to browse through its wide range of classes at any time. Already in 2001, Roland Fischer and Onur Güntürkün, spokesman of the SFB 1280, initiated the lab which keeps today more than 80 courses in the natural sciences and humanities.
