Neuroscience: cellular and circuit mechanisms

The brain processes information through the concerted activity of many neurons, which communicate with each other through synapses organised in highly dynamic networks. The first goal of this course is to gain a detailed understanding of the structure and function of the fundamental building blocks of the brain, its synapses and neurons. In considering this goal, we will also examine some


Scientific project design in integrative neurosciences

This course will provide a forum in which students engage themselves in learning how to design a scientific project that bridges scales and allows following the causal chain from one scale to the next.

State of the Art Topics in Neuroscience XI

The goal of the course is to increase students' knowledge in the field of Neuroscience, with a particular emphasis on neuronal circuits responsible for sensation, motor control and sensorimotor interactions, as well as on their development and plasticity.

Neuronal circuits underlying goal-directed behavior

The brain can be viewed as a network of neurons receiving sensory input and carrying out experience- and context-dependent computations through complex synaptic interactions to drive motor output, i.e. behavior. Here, we will study recent advances in knowledge of neural circuits in the mouse brain.
