Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Researcher Alexander Pomberger at University of Cambridge
The Sensory Physiology course on Vision and Hearing is a comprehensive exploration of the fundamental principles underlying our perception of the world through sight and sound. This course delves into the intricate mechanisms governing vision and hearing, beginning with an overview of the anatomical structures involved in both sensory processes. From the physiology of the eye and the ear to the neural pathways responsible for transmitting visual and auditory information to the brain, students will gain insights into how sensory stimuli are processed and interpreted. Topics include color vision, depth perception, auditory localization, and the complexities of sensory integration. Moreover, the course addresses various disorders related to vision and hearing, discussing causes, treatments, and the latest research in these areas. Emphasizing the developmental and age-related aspects of vision and hearing, the course also investigates the dynamic field of neuroplasticity and its implications on sensory perception. Furthermore, it highlights emerging technologies and ethical considerations within sensory research. Each 20-minute lecture offers a focused exploration of specific themes, enabling a deeper understanding of the intricate sensory mechanisms that shape our perception of the world.
At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the eductor indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.
Sensory Physiology: Vision and Hearing, by Alexander Pomberger
I am a chemist&chemical engineer with a strong interdisciplinary interest in artificial intelligence/machine learning and research commercialization. During my PhD I work at the intersection of synthetic organic chemistry, lab automation via robotics and machine learning-based optimization in order to help tomorrow’s chemist to accelerate their workflows. I am application oriented, aiming to combine novel academic innovations with industrial challenges to finally present a solution ready for use in industry.
