What do you learn?

The course is designed to provide adequate and balanced training in the core subjects as well as clinical areas, especially in biochemistry, anatomy and physiology, with advanced study of the structural, morphological and functional aspects of the central and peripheral nervous systems, including cellular and molecular aspects. These elements are designed to prepare students for appropriate contextualisation of pathological processes, as well as relevant diagnostic-instrumental pathopharmacological therapies. The course also provides students with an opportunity to study information processing in neuroscience which is strategic to the modern computational approach to neuroscience.
