Objectifs et compétences

Objectifs :
In this course, students learn how to conceive experimental designs, to use appropriate statistical and data analysis tools and to interpret statistical results. They get training in the use of the R software and a first approach of processing complex data and modelling for Neuroscience.

Compétences :
  • Define how modern Science works in a global world (from conceptual to political issues)

  • Know the basis of modern statistics and modelling applied to biology
  • Design experimental protocols
  • Process and analyse data using appropriate tools including specialised software

  • Master the foundations of modern Neurosciences
  • 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
  • Name the technical approaches of Neurosciences, explain their theoretical groundings and know when to use them

  • 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
