About

The Behaviour - From Neural Mechanisms to Evolution graduate programme from Bielefeld University provides the relevant interdisciplinary scientific training for a comprehensive education.

Overview

The Behaviour - From Neural Mechanisms to Evolution graduate programme from Bielefeld University introduces concepts, fundamental experimental techniques, and the theoretical approaches that are required to perform research at the frontiers of this ambitious scientific field.

The graduate programme will comprise both a Master's programme and a PhD programme. Excellent students may change directly to the doctoral programme after the successful completion of their first year of studies.

The study programme aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles underlying autonomous adaptive behaviour of animals and humans. Brain morphology and function, including learning ability as well as innate behaviours in humans and animals have been shaped by evolution.

Our study programme bridges the gap from neurophysiology to behavioral ecology. It includes courses on the production of behaviour by neuronal circuits as well as courses on the evolution of behaviour.

As a distinguishing characteristic, this study programme integrates computational and experimental approaches and focuses on the neuronal as well as on the evolutionary aspects of behaviour.
