Course in Integrated Neuroscience (6 ECT's) 2013 - October 28 - November 7
English. If all participants and teachers are native Norwegian speakers, part of the course may be presented in a Scandinavian language.
Thirty hours of lectures, demonstrations and/or laboratory work, concentrated over a two week period.
The course will have a problem-oriented focus and students are expected to participate during the whole teaching period. The course is given once a year. Applications should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Goal: The course is intended to give the students a basic and integrated understanding of the interplay between neurobiological systems and cognition, affect and behaviour. They will also receive an introduction to basic central methods in neuroscience.
During the course the students will be introduced to the most important neurobiological systems (neuroanatomical and neurophysiological). They will be introduced to neuromolecular mechanisms and neuropharmacology. Important psychiatric and neuropsychological clinical conditions as well as normal psychological functions will be described and methods for measuring these will be demonstrated.
The course is obligatory for students accepted by IGSIN. It is expected that students take the course during their first year in the programme. The students at IGSIN will take priority to attend the course. For other applicants relevant qualifications at Master’s level are required. Applicants can have a relevant background in medicine, psychology, biology, information science, linguistics etc.
A written essay focused on integrative perspectives on neuro-anatomical, physiological, chemical and psychological aspects of mental diseases and normal behavioral functions.
