Neuroscience

Aims

The main objective of the Master's Degree is to understand the architecture (morphology, organization and relationships) of the nervous system and the biological and clinical bases for it to work in conditions of health and illness, as well as the different techniques currently used for its study, in order to enable the students to initiate their research careers in Neuroscience.

Competencies

  • Formulating hypotheses, selecting and critically evaluating the scientific information in order to solve problems following the scientific method.
  • Knowing and applying the different neuromorphological, neurochemical, electrophysiological and clinical techniques currently used to study the nervous system.
  • Knowing the architecture (form, organisation and links) of the nervous system, as well as the biological and clinical principles behind its functioning under normal conditions and during illness, allowing the students to begin their research career in any of the areas they study during the Master's degree.
  • Maintaining and updating their skills as a researcher over their professional lifetime.
  • Producing scientific papers and communicating their results both in writing and orally.
  • Understanding the current need for translational research in the area of both neurological and psychiatric illnesses, as well as their outlook for the future.
  • Using the documentary information sources in the field of neurosciences.
