This CIVIS course explores the principles of cellular neuroscience based on the "Neuroscience" book edited by D. Purves et al.
One chapter will be discussed at a time. All PhD candidates will read/analyse the chapter, one of them will give a talk and all PhD candidates, together with a senior supervisor, will then participate in a discussion.
Candidates receive solid theoretical training in principles of cellular and systems neuroscience. Basic knowledge is deepened by providing a structured overview of the subject and discussing current research topics.
