EUGLOH Summer School in Neuroscience

From Neural Stem Cells to Artificial Intelligence
21 Jun 2021 25 Jun 2021
Target Group
From undergraduates to PhDs as well as postdoctoral and senior scientists from the EUGLOH alliance universities
Université Paris-Saclay
Open  (Deadline: 15 May 2021 23:59)

Participants will be immersed in the discovery of the structure, functioning and capacities of the brain. The Neuroscience summer school will provide insights into a broad range of topics, including developmental, cognitive, integrative and computational neurosciences. Theoretical lectures will be accompanied by practical sessions and round table discussions.


Certificates and 4 ECTS will be provided for those who attend the theoretical and practical sessions of the school. Participants who follow only theoretical lectures will receive the certificate and 2 ECTS.
