    The interdisciplinary field of Sensory Sciences explores how people perceive their environment with different sensory modalities and react to them physically and psychologically. In this interdisciplinary course, advanced students from different subjects (psychology, medicine, chemistry - molecular science) learn about and apply important topics, theories and methods of the sensory sciences in a hands-on research. In interdisciplinary teams, students work on small research projects so that they can contribute and deepen their previous subject-specific perspectives and competences, and at the same time engage in an interdisciplinary exchange.
