Development and plasticity of the nervous system

This five-week intensive laboratory and lecture course covers the main cutting-edge topics in neuroscience research.

 

This course offers a full training program for advanced graduate and PhD students, as well as post-graduate neurobiologists and medical doctors working in neurosciences.

 

Lectures given by distinguished international speakers present new data and ideas on molecular and cellular aspects of the nervous system development, its plasticity and its diseases.

 

Practical courses present various animal models (mouse, chick, frog) commonly used in neuroscience research, giving students the opportunity to understand the pros and cons of each technique and to expand their practical skills in carrying out experiments on cell biology, behavioral studies, axonal growth and labeling, drug stereotaxic injection, neuro-anatomy and gene expression analyses using histochemical techniques.

 

The program of the course organized the previous year can be downloaded to get detailed information on the general content of the course; some topics and practical works may change each year, without altering the general aims and means of the course.
