Cognitive biology 2-IKV-191

This course provides a comprehensive overview of principles of cognition, seen as a natural biological phenomenon. The main objective is the formulation of substantiated interrelation of cognition and evolution. The interdisciplinarity of research in cognitive biology requires students to think multi-disciplinary and on multiple scales.

Columns example — two columns

You can place the content in columns by using the Row template, with multiple uses of the Column template inside. See the details in source code.

Column heading

Column width (the width parameter) is given in twelfths of the total content width. Two equally wide columns spanning the whole content width thus have the widths 6 + 6.

  • Text structuring and formatting work as usual in columns, as well as image inclusion, links, templates, even tables.
  • Symbols | a = must be written as {{!}} and {{=}} in plain text, respectively. However, these symbols are used normally to assign template parameters.

Second column heading

The columns may also have unequal widths. E.g., the tables in the previous section would fit well in two columns of widths 7 and 5, respectively.

Columns stack one after another in narrow windows and on mobile devices.
