Inhalt Learning and memory are fundamental brain functions of all animals living on this planet. For humans, these cognitive abilities are indispensable for the acquisition and the passing on of knowledge, for self-reflection, the avoidance of dangers and, last but not least, for the successful passing of exams at the university. Disturbed learning and memory functions occur in a variety of disorders, including dementias, which are characterized by memory deficits, and phobias, which are characterized by an overly strong aversive memory.

This is an introductory course to human learning and memory, which will cover the following topics: Overview of the human memory system, methods to study learning and memory, declarative memory, memory deficits, short-term forms of memory, non-declarative memory, emotional memory and the phenomenon of superior memory. Here and there, studies from our own group are presented to give an insight into memory research.

The course consists of short introductory videos to the topics, articles, links to external resources, and selected book chapters.
Lernziele To know about different forms of human memory and about brain regions that are essential for these forms of memory. To know about the role of emotions in learning and memory, about common disorders with altered memory functions, about different methods to study learning and memory and about evidence-based tips to increase your own memory.
