All courses are taught in English and the programme is aimed at both German and international students. Historically, the programme evolved from a German-style Diploma-programme in Neurobiology/Neuroscience, which had been offered since 1997. Integrative neuroscience considers neural components in their functional context. All levels of analysis are of interest: How do molecular and cellular components build functioning neurons and synapses? How do brain cells work together to form operational circuits? How do circuits jointly generate behavior and cognition? How are individual brains shaped by their interaction with other brains and with the natural environment?
The Integrative Neurosciences master's programme at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg focuses on the neural basis of animal and human behaviour. The programme is research-oriented and covers an exceptionally wide range of neuroscience areas (molecular, cellular, systems, behavioural, cognitive, theoretical), but consists of comparatively few courses that are correspondingly intensive (3 to 5 hrs per week and course). In addition, the programme imparts quantitative and computational skills, which are increasingly important in all areas of neuroscience.
