Program description

Master's Program in Neuroscience

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of science that studies the nervous system at different levels of organization, from genes and molecules to nerve cells, networks, and beyond. The focus of interest in a neuroscientist’s research may lie in understanding the neurobiological bases of behavior, analyzing the functional roles of a single molecule, or in developing novel treatments to neurological disorders or sensory deficits. The Neuroscience study track of the Master’s Program provides you with an understanding of both fundamental and cutting-edge neuroscience, and its modules allow you to gain theoretical knowledge and methodological skills in areas that are of specific interest to you.

The nervous system orchestrates and regulates organismal metabolism, but is at the same time itself a target of numerous metabolites that fuel and affect its functions. To provide the students with a holistic view of the integrated mechanisms that govern organisms, from cells to functional systems, the Program also provides the study track of Cell and Systems Physiology. In addition to addressing the complexity of the metabolic design of organisms, one special focus is on understanding the processes of cell development, regeneration and aging, the key determinants between life and death.

This program is also available in Finnish and Swedish.
