Objectifs et compétences

Objectifs :
The course is focused on the mechanisms of cell differentiation in situ during development of the nervous system and in adulthood. Attention will be paid to patterns and processes in development of the central nervous system in different phyla, and to theories of EvoDevo in neurobiology and complex systems study. Plasticity, learning and aging processes will be addressed.

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

  • Understand the main ideas of complex text written in English
  • Interact regularly with native English speakers without strain for either party
  • Make an effective literature search

  • Master the foundations of modern Neurosciences
  • Formulate appropriate questions and propose effective investigations to complex Neurosciences issues: 5.1. Identify and critically asses theoretical and practical approaches to develop appropriate strategies of investigation 5.2 Critically review specialized bibliography 5.3 Monitor and evaluate results
  • 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
