A two-year Master Degree in Neuroscience, held in English, will be opened in the academic year 2016 - 17 as a collaboration between the University of Pisa and the Scuola Normale Superiore, with the contribution of the Institute of Neuroscience of CNR. This Master Degree will continue the tradition of excellence in Neuroscience in Pisa, pioneered by Giuseppe Moruzzi in the 1950’s and 60’s and flourished thereafter with Lamberto Maffei. With such a strong scientific legacy, Pisa offers a very active and competitive scientific environment for studies in Neuroscience. Aim of the course is to provide an interdisciplinary training spanning across a wide variety of experimental and computational approaches to contemporary Neuroscience, from the molecular and cellular level to the analysis of higher cognitive functions in the human brain. We wish to attract into Neuroscience not only students possessing a BSc (or equivalent) degree in a strictly biological field, but also students coming from a wide range of different educational routes.
