International opportunities for students


The FBN track trains students to combine behavioural, electrophysiological and molecular biology in animals of different species to unveil the neural underpinnings of basic sensory and cognitive functions with a comparative perspective. It offers a range of theoretical courses in basic and advanced neurobiology and neuroscience, in healthy animals and in animal models of clinical conditions, and a set of hands-on courses in fundamental behavioural neuroscience data recordings and analyses. 

Behavioural techniques include conditioning, imprinting and preference choice, and neuroscientific techniques include  single cell recordings, two-photon calcium imaging, immunohistochemical and fluorescent microscopy, gene expression analysis, genome editing, neuronal cell culture and viral-mediated gene transfer. 

This track prepares students to pursue a research-oriented career in the field of fundamental cognitive and behavioural neuroscience, whether in academia or industry.
