In this lecture, it is the follow-up of Action & Cognition I in the winter term, we discuss the physiological substrate of cognitive processes with an emphasis on their relation to behavior. On your journey through the brain we will meet object recognition, attention, decision processes, movement planning and consciousness. A bias will be on physiological mechanisms, but due attention to clinical aspects, theoretical analysis and information theoretic measures will be given.
