This course is intended a a contionual participation in a group reviewing current scientific articles in this area, a "journal club".
Content and learning outcomes

At each meeting, one person is responsible for presenting main objectives, methods and findings in 1-2 articles and should lead the discussion. All attendees must have read the article(s) for each session beforehand, and must participate actively in a discussion to critically evaluate the article.
