Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

*****Update from 03.11.2020:******
Until further notice, the lecture will take place exclusively online via BigBlueButton (or via Blackboard Collaborate, depending on the number of participants). A link will be provided weekly for this purpose.

Course will be held in hybrid format (within-class and digital teaching). Lectures will be streamed. Attendees can decide for themselves, if they want to attend within-class or digital. Due to COVID-19 safety measures there is a limited number of 73 seats in the lecture hall. Students interested in attending lectures within-class are asked to announced this for each unit on Moodle. In the event of a lockdown or other measures that prohibit within-class teaching, we will switch to online teaching.

First lecture on the 7th of October: Please participate in the survey on Moodle on whether you will be attending the within-class-lecture before the first lecture. We urge you to only attend the within-class lecture, if you have indicated that on the survey. Further information is available in Moodle.

Aim: To provide a basic understanding of the biological foundations of human cognition, emotion and behavior.

Contents:
- Brain and behavior (e.g. motivation, sex, language, mental illness)
- Brain plasticity and changes (memory systems, learning)

Methods: The contents of chapters 15-25 of the textbook will be presented in lectures.

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessment is dependent on the exam scenario. Exam scenario is dependent on the circumstances surrounding the time of examination.

If the examination will be held online, the exam mode will be:
A mix of MC and open questions in open-book format. There will be a total of 15 MC questions and 5 open questions. Of these 5 questions, 4 can be answered in a few sentences. The last open question is an "ordinary" long question, as it was asked in the past. The grading key remains unchanged compared to regular presence tests. So there will be a total of 30 points. Each MC question can give you 1 point. For the short open questions 2.5 points per question can be achieved (10 points in total) and for the long question 5 points.

Allowed to use for online open book exams: Neuroscience - Exploring the Brain; Bear, Connors, Paradiso, 4th, International edition

IMPORTANT (for online open-book exams): When answering the open questions, do not copy sentences 1:1 from the book. If you do so, we must classify the exam as a plagiarism.

Update from the 25th of November 2020 (for online open-book exams):
Only the use of the above-mentioned allowed material (textbook Bear et al.) is permitted in the examination, all other sources (lecture notes, other students, internet pages, joint summaries etc.) are explicitely not permitted. If sentences, or paragraphs, are taken directly or even slightly modified (e.g. only 1-2 words in the sentence is changed) from the book without being explicitly cited as a direct or indirect quote (APA-Style) then we must classify the written/open examination as plagiarism.

General information on digital exams can be found in the faculty's own info sheet under: https://ssc-psychologie.univie.ac.at/studium/digitale-pruefungen/

If the examination will be held as an within-class-exam, the exam mode will be:
25 Multiple Choice Questions and 1 Open Format Question

Permitted materials for within-class examinations: none
