Objectifs et compétences

Objectifs :
This course explores the major areas of molecular neurobiology, from genes to the functions of cells of the nervous system. Material provides an essential theoretical framework in molecular neurobiology as well as practical approaches on cell culture and regulation of gene expression. It focuses on major concepts and recent advances in experimental molecular Neuroscience.

Compétences :
  • Define how modern Science works in a global world (from conceptual to political issues)

  • Master the foundations of modern Neurosciences
  • 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
  • Develop and apply appropriate research methodologies (including proteomics, genomics, brain imaging, modelling…) and modern research tools (including software) for investigating brain research issues.
  • 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
  • Name the technical approaches of Neurosciences, explain their theoretical groundings and know when to use them

  • Neurosciences display a very extensive range of interests, from the molecular level to cognition and even further (societal Neuroscience…). Additional specific learning outcomes in a related field can thus spread from mathematics or physics to psychology or sciences of education and cannot be detailed here
