Short description: 
The purpose of the module is the practical application of basic statistical methods during scientific research. Didactic methods used Exercises in the form of multimedia presentations and independent data analysis in the form of solving statistical tasks. Exercises end with a test on which the practical ability to solve a given statistical problem is tested. 
Full description: 
Exercises are devoted to independent statistical calculations. Practical classes include: • Creating distribution series and graphical representation of the distribution series structure (histograms and polygons) • Calculation of basic statistics from distribution series in the form of central trend measures and dispersion measures. (mean and standard deviation by the method of accumulation and deviations, coefficients of variation) • Analysis of sample distribution, measures of distribution asymmetry • Induction statistics, including: stages of scientific research, principles of formulating scientific goals, statistical hypotheses, verification of hypotheses, Type I and Type II errors. • Parametric and nonparametric statistical tests (including student's ttests, ANOVA, fraction tests) • regression analysis, • Chi2 test, In addition to knowledge about the use of these methods, emphasis will also be placed on the issue of conditions in which analyzes of a given type are allowed to be performed. Emphasis is also placed on the interpretation of results and methods of presenting the results of statistical analyzes. During the course, the student becomes familiar with statistical inference using appropriate statistical tests (Student's ttest, oneway analysis of variance, MannWhitney test, Wilcoxon, Kruskal Walis, correlation and straight line regression, Chi 2 test). Performs simple research tasks or expert opinions typical of biological sciences under the supervision of a scientific supervisor. Uses statistical methods at the basic level to describe phenomena and analyze data. Is able to analyze statistical information from various sources and present correct conclusions. He can make the correct hypotheses based on logical premises. Uses basic statistical methods and computational techniques. Can carry out statistical tests. Correctly interprets empirical data and draws appropriate conclusions.

Efekty kształcenia i opis ECTS: 
In terms of knowledge: After completing the course, the student understands the importance of statistical and numerical methods for the description and interpretation of biological phenomena and processes. Uses basic statistical methods and IT techniques to describe phenomena and data analysis. Understands the importance of researching statistical methods in explaining the basis of biological and neurobiological processes. Demonstrates the ability to correctly reason based on data from various sources. In terms of skills: He can formulate statistical hypotheses and correctly construct a research problem and verify statistical hypotheses. Is able to plan and carry out research tasks under the guidance of a scientific supervisor. Uses statistical methods at the basic level to describe phenomena and analyze data. He can make the correct hypotheses based on logical premises Demonstrates the ability to solve statistical tasks and problems using appropriate statistical formulas. Uses basic statistical methods and computational techniques adequate to the scientific problems posed Is able to analyze information from various sources and present correct conclusions In terms of social competence: The student consistently applies and disseminates the principle of strict, based on empirical foundations, interpretation of biological phenomena and processes. Demonstrates criticism in receiving information related to biological sciences from scientific literature, the Internet, and especially available in mass media. Can be selfcritical and draw conclusions based on an analysis of their skills, attitudes and actions 
Assessment methods and assessment criteria: 
Completion of exercises for the grade, colloquium / practical test. Learning outcomes are verified in the form of colloquia carried out during classes. In order to pass the course, students should correctly solve statistical sentences using appropriate formulas. The final grade of the exercises is the result of partial tests checking the knowledge of the exercises. The exam is in the form of written task solving.
