M.Sc. Neurosciences

| Bremen, Germany
Neurosciences are among the most fascinating disciplines of modern natural scientific research and are considered an interdisciplinary connecting link between biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, informatics, and psychology.



The methodical spectrum covers molecularbiological, electrophysiological, and neuropharmacological approaches concerning system-oriented physiology of behaviour and mind, psychophysics, clinical research in neurology and psychiatry, and modelling of functions of neuronal networks as well as neuropsychological approaches and MRI techniques to analyse physiological and pathological brain functions. Neuroscientific research is of particular socio-political relevance, because it primarily deals with the functionality of the brain - the organ that governs feeling, thinking, and action. Thus, there is a close linkage of neurosciences to philosophy and anthropology.
