Module Number: 13335
Module Title:Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) for Neuroadaptive Technology
  Brain-Computer-Interfaces für Neuroadaptive Technologien
Department: Faculty 1 - Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Zander, Thorsten
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: On special announcement
Credits: 6
Learning Outcome:After successfully completing the module, students possess a basic understanding of the methodology of Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), including measurement of brain activity, signal processing, machine learning and the principle of automated interpretation of brain activity to assess information of changes in cognitive states. Furthermore, they are familiar with the use of BCIs in current and to-be-created human-computer interactions which includes the current development of beneficial Artificial Intelligence.
Contents:The module will consist of lectures describing the methodology and use of Brain-Computer Interfaces from the scratch. This includes knowledge from machine learning and signal processing, as well as psychophysiology and psychology, and human-computer interaction. In the seminar, students will read, present and discuss relevant papers published in scientific journals, reflecting different perspectives on Neuroadaptive Technologies and Artificial Intelligence.
