Disciplinary and interdisciplinary training
The PhD in Neuroscience is an intrinsically multidisciplinary course, enrolling students with different backgrounds and experiences. Therefore, PhD students will need to attend courses and seminars held by experts from different areas to become acquainted with different fields of enquiry and methodologies. Theoretical activities include both basic and advanced courses and should be preferably followed during the first and second year of the Doctoral programme (see Syllabus). The list of courses, seminars and workshops is made available every year and is provided here.
Students will also be encouraged to participate in educational activities outside the Doctoral course, including scientific conferences, workshops and summer schools, as well as to take an active role in the organization of in-house meetings and other scientific events.
