Timetable & learning outcomes

This summer school focuses on basic neuroscience concepts and methods. It includes short lectures and hands-on experiments through mini-projects covering questions and techniques used in modern neuroscience research laboratories.

Topics covered will include:

› Cell biology and imaging
› Molecular and cellular biology, transcriptomics
› In vivo surgery, gene transfer
› Anatomy, brain clearing, connectomics and electron microscopy
› In vitro electrophysiology and optogenetics
› In vivo electrophysiology and imaging
› Behavior
› Human neuroscience
› Neurocomputation

Tentative program

Please note: the schedule is presented in Central European Summer Time (CEST). Detailed information will be provided after the course instructors have been selected, according to their specializations.

Expertise upon completion

Upon completion, this project-based summer school will allow participants to:

› Better understand basic experimental approaches in neuroscience research
› Directly perform the experiments
› Strengthen their international scientific network

    A certificate of participation will be awarded to students upon completion of the course.

Program may be subject to change.
