This high-calibre multidisciplinary program is devoted entirely to neuroscience research. It provides an opportunity to contribute to advances in knowledge of the anatomical and functional structure of the brain, the molecular basis of neural communication, and the understanding and treatment of neurological and psychiatric illnesses.
Applicants must have a master’s degree in neurobiology, neurosciences, or an equivalent degree.
Students must have a good understanding of French.
It requires students to achieve a specific level of English proficiency during their studies, including a good understanding of written English.
- Physiopathology of degenerative neurological diseases
- Drug abuse
- Mood disorders
- Neurobiology of stress, anxiety, and pain
- Electrophysiology of vigilance states
- The brain and the immune system
- Neurophysics and neurophotonics
