AbstractThis lecture series provides a comprehensive overview of the most important aspects of clinical exercise testing for diagnosis and assessment of functional status in different patient populations, e.g. patients with pulmonary, cardiac or neuro-muscular disease, with obesity, young or old age. Also, special aspects in the context of training perscriptions in these populations will be discussed.
ObjectiveBy the end of this module, students:
- Have the theoretical basis for disease-specific exercise testing and interpretation in clinical settings
- Know important aspects for disease-specific exercise-training prescriptions and assessment of training progress
- Are able to critically review and interpret scientific literature in the context of physical fitness, performance and training in different patient populations
Lecture notesHandouts are provided via moodle.
LiteratureHandouts are provided via moodle.
Prerequisites / NoticeThe courses "Anatomie & Physiologie I+II", as well as "Sportphysiologie" (or Anatomy, Physiology and Exercise Physiology - equivalents for students without HST-BSc), are required.
376-1168-00LSports Biomechanics Restricted registration - show details W3 credits2VS. Lorenzetti
AbstractVarious types of sport are studied from a mechanical point of view. Of particular interest are the key parameters of a sport as well as the performance relevant indicators.
ObjectiveThe aim of this lecture is to enable the students to study a sport from a biomechanical viewpoint and to develop significant models for which evaluations of the limitations and verifications can be carried out.
ContentSport biomechanics is concerned with the physical and mechanical basic principles of sports. The lecture requires an in-depth mechanical understanding on the side of the student. In this respect, the pre-attendance of the lectures Biomechanics II and Movement and Sports Biomechanics or an equivalent course is expected. The human body is treated as a mechanical system during sport. The interaction of the active and passive movements and outside influences is analysed. Using sports such as ski-jumping, cycling, or weight training, applicable models are created, analyzed and suitable measuring methods are introduced. In particular, the constraints as well as the limitations of the models are of great relevance. The students develop their own models for different sport types, critically discuss the advantages and disadvantages and evaluate applicable measurement methods.
Lecture notesHandout will be distributed.
376-1306-00LClinical Neuroscience Information W3 credits3GG. Schratt, University lecturers
AbstractThe lecture series "Clinical Neuroscience" presents a comprehensive, condensed overview of the most important neurological diseases, their clinical presentation, diagnosis, therapy options and possible causes. Patient demonstrations (Übungen) follow every lecture that is dedicated to a particular disease.
ObjectiveBy the end of this module students should be able to:
- demonstrate their understanding and deep knowledge concerning the main neurological diseases
- identify and explain the different clinical presentation of these diseases, the methodology of diagnosis and the current therapies available
- summarize and critically review scientific literature efficiently and effectively
376-1660-00LScientific Writing, Reporting and Communication Restricted registration - show details
Number of participants limited to 30.

Only for Health Sciences and Technology MSc
W3 credits2VB. Taylor
AbstractThis course aims to teach many of the unwritten rules on how to communicate effectively, from writing reports or manuscripts (or indeed their Master thesis!) through to improving skills in oral presentations, and presenting themselves at interview.
ObjectiveThis course will teach students to communicate effectively in official environments, including:
- writing manuscripts, theses, CVs, reports etc
- presenting posters
- oral presentations
- critical reviews of literature
376-1719-00LStatistics for Experimental ResearchW3 credits2VR.  van de Langenberg
AbstractStudents will learn the necessary statistical concepts and skills to independently (1) design experiments (2) analyse experimental data and (3) report analyses and results in a scientifically appropriate manner.
ObjectiveAfter successful completion of the course, students should be able to:
1. Determine appropriate experimental designs and choose, justify and perform the appropriate statistical analyses using R.
2. Report analyses and results in a scientifically appropriate manner, as laid out by the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA, sixth edition).
ContentWe will cover basic statistical concepts (e.g., central tendency, variability, data distribution), the t-test (dependent and independent), ANOVA (univariate, factorial and repeated measures), correlation, multiple regression, nonparametric techniques, validity and reliability tests, effect size, data transformation, power and sample size estimation.
Lecture notesLecture notes will be delivered in the form of commented presentations in Microsoft Powerpoint (i.e. pptx) format. R practical session assignments will be delivered in pdf-format.
LiteratureBoth in the lectures and in the tutorials and practical sessions, we will refer students to the following publication:
