Ph. D. in Neuoscience

The training of the PHD students will be based on direct research experience in laboratories and clinics. It will focus on issues that characterize the scientific interests of each teacher “tutor” or research group. The students will be trained and educated to follow different research topics and to become increasingly independent in the technical procedures and scientific reasoning.

These objectives will be achieved through a process of specific mentoring, capable of making the PHD student completely autonomous in designing and carrying out researches in neuroscience. In addition, students will participate to seminars on a monthly or bi-monthly schedule.. They, will be also invited to present their data and those of the laboratory in which they are mainly training.
In such a way they will learn and develop, the ability to communicate.

They will be also in contact, through the use of modern communication tools, with the foreign teachers who are an essential part of our faculty.

As a fundamental component of the training program we will be able to host with us for certain periods of time, teachers currently working in institutions different from Tor Vergata. We will also try to make it possible for students to attend to part of the scientific activities ongoing in other Neuroscience laboratories and institutes in Italy and abroad.

These are the main topics of research:
Neurophysiology, Neuropharmacology, Neurology, Psychiatry, Molecular Neurobiology, Neurochemistry, Child Neuropsychiatry, Behavioural Neurology, Neuropsychology.
