Who we are

MISSION: The PhD program in Behavioral Neuroscience is a third level course of study aimed at forming young scholars highly qualified at all levels of psychological neuroscience, ranging from cellular/molecular levels to those of neurotransmitter systems and the neurophysiological and neuropsychological bases of higher brain functions in non human primates and humans under both normal and pathological conditions. The PhD program has also full international features, thanks to a recent Multilateral Inter-university Agreement for the Establishment and Operation of an International PhD Program in Neuroscience with the Universities of Madrid (Spain), Crete (Greece) e Porto (Portugal), awarding a double PhD title. 

HISTORY: The PhD program of Behavioral Neuroscience originated early in 2012, when Professors coming from the former PhD program in Neurophysiology joined the previous PhD program of Psychobiology and Cognitive Neuroscience, allowing this program to significantly broaden its dimension and field of scientific interest. This led to the new program’s title of “Behavioral Neuroscience” and the establishment of a new curriculum of “Behavioral Neurophysiology”, in addition to the former program’s curricula of “Psychobiology and Psychopharmacology” and “Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neuroscience”.
