Education – University of Copenhagen


Neuroscience education at the
Department of Neuroscience (IN):

An overview

IN is responsible for the majority of all formal education in neuroscience at the University of Copenhagen, and more broadly, in the greater Copenhagen area. It offers courses targeted to both pre- and postgraduate students in medicine (>500 students/year) and odontology-dentistry, as well as in the programs of human biology, Human physiology, molecular biomedicine, and biomedical engineering.

The following courses are offered:

  • Excitable cells
    (Basic neurophysiology and cellular neuroscience)
  • CNS structure and function
    (Clinical neuroscience including the neurological examination)
  • Cellular Neuroscience
    (Cellular and molecular properties of neurons and neural networks)
  • Neuropharmacology
    (Taught in conjunction with Pharmacology)
  • Human Neurobiology
    (Integrative function of the human brain incl. EEG, fMRI, DTI, PET)
  • Neuronal Signaling
    (The nervous system and advanced techniques used to explore it)
  • Tissue & Movement Biomechanics
    (Dynamics and energy consumption of movement)
  • Advanced cell biology
    (Theoretical and practical coverage of cell biology and associated techniques)
  • Pharmacology and Toxicology
    (Advanced pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics)

IN has started the process for developing two new educations in Neuroscience:

  • A 2 year MSc education in Neuroscience
  • A 1 year Master education in Neurorehabilitation
