The course Neurobiology will explore the structure and function of the mammalian nervous system by examining the molecules, cells, and circuits that are involved in directing behavior.
You will learn
- how the nervous system is built during development
- how it changes with experience throughout life
- how it functions in normal behaviour
- how malfunctioning communication between neurons and other cells leads to neurological diseases.
The course will also cover basic and functional anatomy of the central nervous system.
Teaching methods include lectures and highly interactive seminars. Through group assignments and individual assignments, you will learn and practice how to understand scientific literature in the field of neurobiology and how to present and discuss questions concerning neurobiology in a broader perspective.
