  • Event location: Room 2.10 - UOS - Via dell’Università, 50 - Cesena - In presence and online event

  • Type: IBES Course


This course provides an in-depth exploration of modern research questions and methods in neuroscience, with a special emphasis on the pivotal roles that biomedical engineers can play in advancing this field. The course will include discussions on molecular and genetic methods, neurophysiology, cognition and decision-making, mathematical models of neural function, and clinical interventions. A key feature of the course is its practical component, in which students will have the opportunity to engage with international experts to iterate towards solutions to problems on cutting-edge challenges in neuroscience. These projects are structured to mirror professional international teamwork and require effective communication, critical thinking, and project management, offering students a real-world experience of the complexities and rewards of such projects. The course has several key learning objectives: acquiring essential scientific knowledge in neuroscience, understanding empirical methods and their limitations, and gaining practical experience in solving real-world neuroscience problems. Through this integrative approach, students will emerge with a deeper appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of neuroscience and the diverse ways in which biomedical engineering can significantly contribute to innovation in the field.
