MSc Neurosciences

Teaching Concept – Career Tailored Education

How does the brain work? Significant progress has been made in the field of cellular and molecular enb_msc_neuroscienceneuroscience, and modern in vivo techniques have revolutionized non-invasive observation of brain activity even in humans. Today's challenges lies in understanding the brain as a complex functioning system and many problem remain to be solved.

The members of our teaching faculty, which include GSN or guest lecturers from external institutions, believe that the overwhelming complexity of the human brain can only be explained by applying different approaches and methods of the disciplines in neuroscience. The Master progam constantly works on educating a new generation of neuroscientists. With an exellent understanding of the molecular, cellular and systemic principles of neurobiology, our students acquire a deeper knowledge of neuron-neuron interaction, the dynamics of neuron-glia interaction, rules of information transfer in simple and complex circuits of single brain centers, interaction of different brain centers, and the function of the human brain. This educational concept of the Master Program in Neurosciences can be seen reflected in the curriculum.

Two academic tracks

Starting 2018, the GSN curriculum has been expanded in order to offer students more flexibility, as well as the opportunity to sharpen their academic profile. Students can now choose courses along either a Systemic-Cellular-Molecular Neuroscience track or a Computational Neuroscience track. Regardless of the selected track, all students will complete coursework within the other area, however, at a more moderate level.
