|1.||Attain advanced knowledge of the nervous system structure and functioning, including the neurophysiology of higher human brain functions: memory, learning, cognition, behaviour, emotions, language;|
|2.||Explore mechanisms of addiction and sleep disorders; elucidate brain regulation of muscle functions, neuronal pathways from brain centres to effector organs, pathophysiological mechanisms underlying disorders of neuromuscular transmission;|
|3.||Evaluate sensory pathways from the special sense organs (visual, auditory, smell, taste), and from somatic sensory receptors (touch, pressure, pain) to cortical centres; interpret the regulation of autonomic functions by the central and peripheral nervous system; mechanisms underlying dysfunctions of the autonomic nervous system including enteric nervous system and brain-gut disorders;|
|4.||Demonstrate effective communication and interpersonal skills through oral presentations regarding neurological disorders; integrate information on the latest studies in Neuroscience, diagnostic methods and novel treatments for the nervous system diseases.|
