Cycle B Seminars Overview

The lecture series will provide basic knowledge in neurobiology. All the graduate students who aim to obtain a Ph.D. in neuroscience should attend these lectures. In each semester one particular topic from developmental to clinical aspects of neuro¬science will be covered. Lectures will include a general introduction into the topic as well as a discussion of the latest results in the field. Lectures will be taught by experts from the University of Basel, the Friedrich Miescher Institute and from industry.
