This course aims at providing the basic knowledge regarding the structural and functional organization of the Central Nervous system
At the end of the course, the student will be capable of:
-- Understanding how the molecular and cellular processes in neurons and glia and the organization of neural circuits give rise to sensory information processing, motor control, sleep, memory, learning, emotions, language, thought and motivated behavior
-- describing the specific features of Central Nervous System pathophysiology, of the neuron-glia interaction, of the processes of neurodegeneration and of possible strategies of neuroprotection
-- Understanding how genetic and environmental factors and psychological experience may interact in generating neurological and psychic disturbances.
-- explaining the modalities of onset and the main features of the most important CNS pathologies (Parkinson's, Huntington's, Alzheimer's diseases, epilepsy and migraine, ALS, Schizophrenia, Depression, Bipolar Spectrum Disorders, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, ADHD)
-- defining the main Neuroscience research approaches for studying CNS Pathologies and developing their therapies.

Good knowledge of Physiology and Neurophysiology in particular
