This cutting-edge Masters programme is a combined effort of several
Athens-based departments and research centers including the

   - Department of Biology of the National and Kapodistrian University of
   Athens
   - Department of Nursing of the National and Kapodistrian University of
   Athens
   - Department of Dentistry of the National and Kapodistrian University of
   Athens
   - School of Medicine of the National and Kapodistrian University of
   Athens
   - Foundation for Biomedical Research of the Academy of Athens
   - National Center for Scientific Research "Demokritos"
   - Hellenic Pasteur Institute
   - Biomedical Sciences Research Center “Alexander Fleming”

which builds on the multi-disciplinary research profiles of its staff. Teaching
and research staff includes Greek and International professors and
researchers of Greek and International Universities and Research Centers. *All
lectures are taught in English*.


The programme equips students with a rigorous grounding in experimental and
computational methods of neurosciences; it also provides them with the
opportunity to apply the knowledge they acquired in a practical research
project, which may be carried out in collaboration with one of the Masters
programme’s industry partners.




** COURSE OUTLINE **

 —————————

This is a two-year MSc degree programme, consisting of taught modules (12
months) plus research project and dissertation (12 months). It is designed
for students with a good degree in the biological / life sciences
(psychology, neuroscience, biology, medicine, etc.) or physical sciences
(computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering) interested in how the
brain and mind works.



The core contents of this programme include (i) fundamentals of experimental
neurosciences (developmental neuroscience, cellular and molecular
neuroscience, neuroanatomy, neurobiological bases of diseases of the
nervous system, neuropharmacology, neuroimmunology, neuroendocrinology.
behavioral neuroscience, electrophysiology, neuroimaging), (ii) Lab
rotations, and (iii) concepts,methods of computational modelling, data
analytics and machine learning.



Unlike other standard neuroscience programmes (focusing predominantly either
on “low-level” or "high-level" aspects of neuroscience), one of the
distinctive features of this programme is that it covers the whole spectrum
of the neurosciences bridging the gap between molecular and cellular
neuroscience to high-level cognitive processes (e.g., language, attention,
and decision making) including computational neuroscience and big data
analytics. The final research project and dissertation is carried out in
collaboration with an external partner, either from academia or industry.


** WHY STUDY IN ATHENS **

 --------------------------------------

Aside from mastering neuroscience, you can also enjoy the largest open-air
museum during its mostly sunny and dry days. These include Acropolis and
