Renowned specialists will guide a limited number of students (maximum 30) through the complexity of the human mind and brain, tackled through the study of sensation and perception.
The Summer School will use the Blended Intensive Program format, with a 5-days online component and a 5-days in-person component.
The Summer School is fully funded, with no admittance fee, accommodation covered, and travel grants available.
