The CAJAL Advanced Neuroscience Training Programme represents commitment by the five partner institutions FENS, IBRO, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, University of Bordeaux and the Champalimaud Foundation, which offers state-of-the-art hands-on training courses in neuroscience.
This year the programme is between the 9-27th of November in Bordeaux, France. The original deadline was on the 27th of July, but due to the Covid virus the training programme is still open until the 1st of September 2020.
This course aims to bring students up-to-date with the most recent developments in this exciting and fundamental field of neuroscience research. The focus will be on the advanced experimental approaches that are available today for the dissection of neural circuit connectivity and activity in various animal models (mouse, fly, zebrafish).
The faculty will consist of international experts in their respective fields, discussing fundamental concepts and their own research, introducing methods relevant for neural circuit research, and providing hands-on projects. Students will perform experimental projects to apply these methods to scientific problems, they will learn how to analyze acquired data, and they will discuss strengths and limitations of the various techniques.
