Upon successful completion of this course, students have acquired basic knowledge of fundamental principles of neurobiology. The aim of this background module is to provide a solid biological knowledge base required for studying advanced neuroscientific topics. It is designed in particular, but not exclusively, for students joining the local M.Sc. Neuroscience program from previous study paths with little (neuro)biological background.
