About

Neuroscience comprises the study of the nervous system; in particular, the study of each of its various aspects and specialized functions. This Master in Neuroscience at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid aims to present the fundamental aspects of the molecules, cells and structures that make up the nervous system in different living beings, as well as the main processes involved in nervous integration and in the behaviors resulting from it. In this Master in Neuroscience, an approach to the nervous system will be carried out from an integrative and multidisciplinary perspective, without losing sight of the training in experimental techniques that are currently used in research in Neuroscience. After a compulsory module on the foundations in Neuroscience, the doors will open to 3 specialized itineraries: Neurobiology, Clinical Neuroscience, and Cognitive Neuroscience.
