Gain a unique insight into dementia through the stories, symptoms and science behind four less common diagnoses. Dementia is one of the foremost priorities in global health and is estimated to affect over 44 million people worldwide. This has a huge impact on individuals and on society, so improvements in understanding, care and treatments are desperately needed.

Learn how the nervous system produces behavior, how we use our brain every day, and how neuroscience can explain the common problems afflicting people today. We will study functional human neuroanatomy and neuronal communication, and then use this information to understand how we perceive the outside world, move our bodies voluntarily, stay alive, and play well with others.

Hello everyone! Welcome to advanced neurobiology! Neuroscience is a wonderful branch of science on how our brain perceives the external world, how our brain thinks, how our brain responds to the outside of the world, and how during disease or aging the neuronal connections deteriorate. We’re trying to understand the molecular, cellular nature and the circuitry arrangement of how nervous system works.

La empresa, como la sociedad, está viviendo momentos de incertidumbre, riesgo y caos. Esto provoca un ambiente laboral de miedo, desconfianza, inseguridad, que se traduce en personas que se ven obligadas a dejar su puesto de trabajo y personal desmotivado que trabaja bajo mucha presión, sin implicación personal en su labor profesional, preocupado más por adquirir información técnica, que por el valor que puede aportar como persona a la empresa. En este curso conocerás las nuevas exigencias laborales, así como los nuevos paradigmas de la empresa dinámica, proactiva y actual en la que, por un lado, se asumen riesgos y, por otro, también es vital innovar en la estrategia de crecimiento.

Medical Neuroscience explores the functional organization and neurophysiology of the human central nervous system, while providing a neurobiological framework for understanding human behavior. In this course, you will discover the organization of the neural systems in the brain and spinal cord that mediate sensation, motivate bodily action, and integrate sensorimotor signals with memory, emotion and related faculties of cognition. The overall goal of this course is to provide the foundation for understanding the impairments of sensation, action and cognition that accompany injury, disease or dysfunction in the central nervous system. The course will build upon knowledge acquired through prior studies of cell and molecular biology, general physiology and human anatomy, as we focus primarily on the central nervous system.

Brain function determines our behavior and dictates who we are. Our brain function governs our every thoughts and every action. The brain processes information through the concerted activity of many neurons, which communicate with each other through contacts we call synapses organized in highly dynamic networks. In this course, we are taking a bottom up approach to studying the brain, starting from molecules to end with behaviors and mental disorders.
