Quotations I am fond of


I like teaching, considering it a kind of mission to spread the "fascinating news" in the domains of my research interests. I also appreciate the feedback, especially from motivated and active students. In addition, it is a challenge for me to be involved in our joint Middle-European Interdisciplinary Master Programme in Cognitive Science (MEiCogSci) that is taught in English.



  • 2-AIN-132 Neural networks - primarily for master students in (applied) informatics and cognitive science, but also bachelors can take this course
