About

The Interdisciplinary Neuroscience programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt will confront students with various levels of complexity of neural functions from molecular biology to systems neuroscience.

Overview

The major objective of the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt is to provide to talented students a highly research-oriented training that will provide them with a broad overview of the most relevant fields of neuroscience, including basic neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and computational neuroscience. This also includes relevant practical skills. 

A major characteristic comprises the optional training in clinical neuroscience that will familiarise students with neuropathology and aspects of neurology and will provide them with hands on information on current technical approaches applied in clinical research.

You do not require previous intensive training in neuroscience. However, solid background knowledge in the field of neuroscience is essential for following the courses. This includes the principal education in laboratory techniques, particularly in cell biological bench work. As the programme is an interdisciplinary one, we invite applications from students from various fields. These include biology and medicine but also biochemistry, chemistry, physics, informatics and psychology. The programme aims at fostering interactions between students and between students and lecturers from the various disciplines.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Auditory Neuroscience
