Introduction

This PhD Program aims to train researchers in the areas of basic and applied Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry, emphasizing interdisciplinarity. With this perspective, the program includes researchers attached to different areas of knowledge in the fields of Neurobiology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology and Health and Psychiatry. It is an interuniversity program, organized jointly by the Universities of Santiago de Compostela (which coordinates it), A Coruña and Vigo.

Why study the degree

The study of the nervous system in general, and of the human brain in particular, is one of the priority research areas around the world. One of the major challenges of this research is to discover the mysteries of the brain, from the molecular functioning to the mechanisms that sustain processes such as memory, intelligence or conscious action and their interaction with the environment. The progress in the knowledge of the nervous system will allow to combat the diseases that affect it and to improve the quality of life. From a more clinical perspective, this program integrates lines that deal with the understanding, prevention and treatment of mental disorders, approaching them from a biopsychosocial perspective....

The aim of the study is to achieve (i) transdisciplinary research excellence in identifying individual risk factors for harmful substance use and addictive behaviors, (ii) advanced knowledge and skills on clinical work in the field of addictology, and (iii) theoretical insight into public health issues in addictology. The graduate acquires a deep understanding of the field of addictology and its anchoring in theory, politics and its interventions, in the study of addictive behaviors and its risk factors from a transdisciplinary perspective. The three pillars of the study further provide graduates with expertise in transdisciplinary addictology research applied to clinical evaluation and assessment of the effectiveness of public health policies....

The postgraduate (Ph.D.) program in neurosciences is designed for the study of the structure, functions, and disorders of the nervous system. The Neurosciences program covers, in particular, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurogenetics, neuropathology and neuropathophysiology, methods used in those disciplines, essential clinical knowledge of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry as well as of the diagnostic methods used in those disciplines. A graduate of the course of study in Neurosciences has the basic knowledge of all the above parts of the discipline, is capable of independent scientific work, and well-versed in the current state of knowledge in the field of his/her dissertation. A graduate of the course of study in Neurosciences is mentioned as an author/ess in the basic reference databases of his/her field of study.... [-]

Neuroscience occupies a special position in the system of scientific fields due to the high specificity of functional neural tissue that significantly differs from other tissues in almost all observable parameters at all levels. Added to this are the enormous heterogeneity in functional neuronal population and the fact that one of the cardinal functional manifestations of the outer world is a reflection of mental activity. Neuroscience brings together a range of sub-disciplines as neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurochemistry, neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry.

The study program is carried out in collaboration with the Institute of Experimental Medicine and Institute of Physiology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.... [-]
