Academic courses at the Institute of Physiology include a preclinical education in Physiology in the form of lectures, seminars in small groups, as well as practical courses. Extensive, optional colloquia focusing on the basics of brain function challenge students on current aspects of brain research. Specialized courses serve to instruct students in academic procedures employing modern methods for basic research. Additionally, the Institute of Physiology takes an active part in teaching within the specialized degree program Neurobiology/Neuroscience.
