Objectifs et compétences

Objectifs :
This course provides the students with an essential theoretical framework for neurophysiology, so that they understand how the nervous system communicates and processes information, from basic electrical properties to synaptic plasticity. The course also gives an overview of the techniques used to monitor cellular activity, including specific hands on in modern Neuroscience labs using cutting edge techniques in the field.

Compétences :
  • Understand the main ideas of complex text written in English
  • Process and analyse data using appropriate tools including specialised software

  • Master the foundations of modern Neurosciences
  • Have in-depth knowledge of at least one specialized Neurosciences field
  • Apply the basic technical approaches of Neurosciences 4.1 Neuroanatomy 4.2 Neurophysiology 4.3 Cellular & molecular neurosciences 4.4 Neuropharmacology 4.5 Behavioural approaches
  • Name the technical approaches of Neurosciences, explain their theoretical groundings and know when to use them
  • Have a general, precise and critical overview of the fields of Neurosciences, in all their aspects, from normal functioning to brain diseases and in adjacent fields (Physiology, Biology, Experimental Psychology, Cognitive Science) 2.1 Functional neuroanatomy 2.2 Neurodevelopment 2.3 Molecular and cellular Neurobiology 2.4 Neurogenetics and neurogenomics 2.5 Neurophysiology and cell imaging 2.6 Neuropharmacology 2.7 System neurosciences 2.8 Behavioural & cognitive neurosciences 2.9 Neuroendocrinology and neuro-immunology 2.10 Computational and theoretical neurosciences
