Summary: You will receive a theoretical background in neural networks and more specifically convolutional neural networks (a type of deep learning), how these neural networks can be trained, investigated and used in psychological and cognitive neuroscience research.

You will get hands-on experience programming with training and investigating trained, CNNs, making use of Python library PyTorch.

(some) Prior knowledge in Python is required, but can be caught up, if necessary, with online course material prior to the
