Langue d'enseignement : Français
Crédits ECTS: 9


  • Heures d'enseignement dispensées à l'étudiant : 82 heures
  • Temps de travail personnel : 148 heures

Objectifs et compétences

Objectifs :
Maîtriser différents niveaux d’analyse des comportements : de l’éthologie à la neuropsychologie et l’identification de leurs bases biologiques (approche pluridisciplinaire d’une fonction). Comprendre les différents aspects des comportements émotionnels et cognitifs, leur fonction adaptative et leur expression pathologique.

Compétences :
  • Describe the origins and possible future of Neurosciences
  • Look for and apply for an international PhD position
  • Look for and apply for an international job in the industry
  • Look for and apply for other jobs related to Neurosciences

  • Design experimental protocols
  • Process and analyse data using appropriate tools including specialised software
  • Understand the main ideas of complex text written in English
  • Apply the rules of health and security at work in the lab
  • Examine their own practice at all levels in a critical manner and modify accordingly, including find appropriate information and counselling to do so.
  • List ethical issues and regulations linked to animal and human experimentation
  • Apply the basic philosophy of scientific and technical thinking and consider ethical issues related to scientific research

  • Master the foundations of modern Neurosciences
  • Have in-depth knowledge of at least one specialized Neurosciences field
  • Apply the basic technical approaches of Neurosciences 4.1 Neuroanatomy 4.2 Neurophysiology 4.3 Cellular & molecular neurosciences 4.4 Neuropharmacology 4.5 Behavioural approaches
  • Examine their own practice in a critical manner and modify accordingly, including reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of brain research
  • Have a general, precise and critical overview of the fields of Neurosciences, in all their aspects, from normal functioning to brain diseases and in adjacent fields (Physiology, Biology, Experimental Psychology, Cognitive Science) 2.1 Functional neuroanatomy 2.2 Neurodevelopment 2.3 Molecular and cellular Neurobiology 2.4 Neurogenetics and neurogenomics 2.5 Neurophysiology and cell imaging 2.6 Neuropharmacology 2.7 System neurosciences 2.8 Behavioural & cognitive neurosciences 2.9 Neuroendocrinology and neuro-immunology 2.10 Computational and theoretical neurosciences
  • Formulate appropriate questions and propose effective investigations to complex Neurosciences issues: 5.1. Identify and critically asses theoretical and practical approaches to develop appropriate strategies of investigation 5.2 Critically review specialized bibliography 5.3 Monitor and evaluate results

  • Neurosciences display a very extensive range of interests, from the molecular level to cognition and even further (societal Neuroscience…). Additional specific learning outcomes in a related field can thus spread from mathematics or physics to psychology or sciences of education and cannot be detailed here
