2nd BIGS Neuroscience Summer School
BONN, 16 – 25 April, 2018
The aim of this summer school is to provide a systematic and broad introduction to central topics in neuroscience.
Key topics: Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cellular and Developmental Neuroscience, Disease and Regeneration, Stem Cells, Neuroanatomy, Circuits, Imaging and Optogenetics, Electrophysiology, fMRI Population Studies, Computational Neuroscience, Robotics
The course is designed for first-year doctoral students from a variety of neuroscience – related fields, including biology, psychology, medicine, physics and computer science. The aim of this intense 8 days training is to allow students to achieve a basic understanding of fundamental topics and methods in modern neuroscience. The school takes advantage of the rich Neuroscience environment offered in Bonn by the University and several other research institutions. The training is offered from leading researchers from the University faculties of Medicine and Mathematics and Natural Sciences, from the Max-Planck Society- Caesar and from the Helmholtz Association- DZNE.
It is structured in a series of long lectures covering neuronal cell biology and genetics, neuronal function, diseases of the nervous system, population studies and computational neuroscience. The models introduced include mouse and Drosophila, with a clear emphasis on human neurobiology. A major focus is on technical advances.
Importantly, also the practical aspects of each topic will be covered by a structured hands- on tutorial, where the previously addressed theory will be put in practice.
The course is designed for doctoral students from a variety of neuroscience – related fields, including biology, psychology, medicine, physics and computer science.
