Basic neuroscience and physiology courses
After the course, the students will:
- understand the basic principles of brain-immune interactions.
- be familiar with the most commonly used experimental approaches in neuroinflammation and neuroimmunology (animal models, imaging techniques, advanced microscopy, measurement of inflammatory mediators, cell biological approaches, etc).
- be able to apply the understanding of basic concepts and approaches in neuroimmunology to other fields of neuroscience and critically judge new findings.
- be better equipped to take neuroinflammation aspects into consideration in their own research.
The course consists of lectures on current topics of the field, including basic lectures on the immune- and the nervous system, their interactions, the regulation of immune processes by the central nervous system and the role of inflammatory processes in brain diseases.
Course reading material will be provided by the teacher.
Lectures 15h, independent work (30h), exam
