|Master of Science (MSc)
The Master’s Degree Program in Neurobiology provides students who are in possession of first level training in the biological or biotechnological field, with in-depth knowledge of the morpho-functional organization of the nervous system, the cellular and molecular correlates of neural functions, and modalities in which these functions are realized at the systemic level, as well as on the neurobiological bases of the pathologies of the nervous system.
The aim of the Course is to allow the acquisition, not only of a cognitive training, but also of specific skills such as: Modalities governing experimental and applied neurobiological research, regarding its recent trends, and the technologies it relies on applications of neurobiological knowledge and techniques in the industrial, bio-system and bioinformatics fields.
The primary objective of the training course will be to highlight the fundamental problems in the neuroscientific field (integrated functions, cellular mechanisms, genetic and molecular substrates, bases of pathological processes), underlining the importance of multidisciplinary approaches for the progress of knowledge.
