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.

Teaching aims:
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.


NEW MASTER IN NEUROSCIENCES (2013-2014)

    PROVISIONAL CALENDAR FOR NEXT YEAR (2013-2014)

Our Master inNeurosciences  improves the distribution of its contents into the modules next year. This are the new modules:

Module 1: Neuroanatomy and cellular neurobiology (9 ECTS)

    Neurobiology
    Development
    Neuroanatomy

Module 2: Molecular neurobiology and neurophysiology (9 ECTS)
    Neurochemistry and neuropharmacology
    Neurophysiology

Module 3: Scientific skills in Neuroscience (12 ECTS)

    Communication in science
    Statistical analysis of experimental data
    Incorporation to a research group (to prepare the researh project- module 6)

Module 4: Physiopathology and regeneration of neurological disorders (9 ECTS)

    Cellular and molecular basis of neurodegenerative processes
    Regeneration and plasticity of the nervous system

Module 5: Neurobiology of cognition and behavior (9 ECTS)

    Psycobiology of emotion, learning and memory, and conciousness
    Neuroendocrinology of stress, hormonal diseases of behavior, and animal models of psychopathology
    Neurobiology of mental pathologies

Module 6: Research project (12 ECTS)

    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)
Classes Weekly 

Timetable: Daily classes, generally from 9:00 to 11:00. The rest of the time is busy with assignments and laboratory work.

Places: 50
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).
