CIENTÍFICA

NEUROBIOLOGÍA
CELULAR
Y MOLECULAR

En este Departamento se estudian diversos procesos neurobiológicos que abarcan desde los mecanismos básicos y fundamentales de la comunicación nerviosa, tanto química como eléctrica, hasta procesos con implicaciones clínicas, farmacológicas y zootécnicas.

NEUROBIOLOGÍA
CONDUCTUAL
Y COGNITIVA

En este Departamento se analizan los mecanismos neurobiológicos que participan en el control de la conducta y de procesos cerebrales complejos en animales y humanos.

NEUROBIOLOGÍA
DEL DESARROLLO
Y NEUROFISIOLOGÍA

En este Departamento se estudian diversos aspectos del desarrollo, funcionamiento y estructura del sistema nervioso utilizando enfoques moleculares, morfológicos, electrofisiológicos y conductuales.

OFERTA
ACADÉMICA

El Instituto de Neurobiología de la UNAM participa en diversos programas de formación de recursos humanos en Neurobiología y Neurociencias, con numerosas vertientes de investigación y desarrollo.
