ABOUT THE INSTITUTE OF NEUROSCIENCE (INc)
In 2003 molecular biologists, physiologists, biochemists, pharmacologists, neuropathologists, histochemists, psychologists, psychobiologists and bioinformaticians working at the UAB created the INc with the main strategic goal of leaving traditional disciplines behind, and engaging in a multidisciplinary and translational approach to key issues about the brain in the XXI century: neurodegeneration, neuroregeneration, and the underpinnings of the normal and disturbed mind. We are interested in how the normal brain works, what happens when it gets sick, and how to cure it. We explore all levels of biological organization from the interaction among single molecules to complex behaviors using cell cultures, animal models and human patients. And we aim at applying novel molecular, cellular, genetic and psychological therapies to brain pathology.
The UAB Official Master in Neurosciences is member of NENS, the Network of European Neuroscience Schools
Pre-registration info: BioSciences Faculty (Gesti√≥ acad√®mica de Bioci√®ncies)
Tutorials: Margalida Coll (Master coordinator)
Institute of Neurosciences and Psychobiology Unit, Bldg B, UAB Campus, 08193 Bellaterra, Spain
To educate future scientists to analyze the causes and consequences of pathological conditions of the nervous system, and pave the way for new therapeutic treatments.
MASTER IN NEUROSCIENCES
Module 2: Molecular neurobiology and neurophysiology (9 ECTS)
Neurochemistry and neuropharmacology
Communication in science
Statistical analysis of experimental data
Incorporation to a research group (to prepare the researh project- module 6)
Cellular and molecular basis of neurodegenerative processes
Regeneration and plasticity of the nervous system
Psycobiology of emotion, learning and memory, and conciousness
Neuroendocrinology of stress, hormonal diseases of behavior, and animal models of psychopathology
Neurobiology of mental pathologies
The project may be carried out within any of the 33 research groups at the INc
Track: Research only
Type of Master: Official Master (after completion, it allows to enroll in the PhD program of Neurosciences)
Total credits: 60 ECTS (one academic year)
Timetable: Daily classes, generally from 9:00 to 11:00. The rest of the time is busy with assignments and laboratory work.
Languages: Spanish and Catalan are common use in daily life and in class, and you must understand reasonably well one of them; knowledge of English is required. You may address your instructors, write exams and assignments in any of the three languages. However, English is the only language in Module 3 (communication in science).
