Lecture series Neurobiology Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Course Overview

Neuroscience designates all aspects of the nervous system, from the specifics of the cells in this system, through cellular communication, to the complex anatomical and functional structures of higher nervous systems. The questions and methods used in researching the nervous system are correspondingly broad. Several chairs and working groups at the faculty have set themselves the goal of dealing with such questions and will present them in the lecture. Since the lecture lasts 2 semesters, the speakers also have the opportunity to present topics that cannot otherwise be covered in the course at the RUB and offer at least a brief insight into other areas of work. The students learn basic knowledge about different areas of neurobiology in English and can reproduce and explain it. Mandatory course for M.Sc. students in biology with a focus on neurobiology
