Ensuring long-term retention of the acquired practical skills is one of the major aims of a medical school. This depends on the application of training techniques and their combinations. In order to standardize the teaching process, to acquire and maintain a broad array of technical, professional, and interpersonal skills and competencies, and to improve the retention of practical skills, we developed a new training technique - the HybridLab® learning method. It consists of an e-learning platform, hands-on simulation, carefully elaborated learning algorithms (DRAKON), peer-to-peer teaching, and assessment and feedback by peers, and later - by a remote instructor...

The study of non-human animals, in particular primates, can provide essential insights into language evolution. A critical element of language is vocal production learning, i.e. learning how to produce calls. In contrast to other lineages such as songbirds, vocal production learning of completely new signals is strikingly rare in non-human primates. An increasing body of research, however, suggests that various species of non-human primates engage in vocal accommodation and adjust the structure of their calls in response to environmental noise or conspecific vocalizations...
