The main objective of the Institute of Neurobiology is to generate original knowledge in the field of neurosciences; study of the brain is one of the most thrilling and promising scientific endeavors of our times, is essential for a better understanding of the functioning of the nervous system, human nature, and diverse neurological and psychiatric diseases.

The Institute of Neurobiology offers two graduate programs whose main objective is to introduce the student to the fundamental aspects of contemporary neurosciences and, starting from there, to prepare him/her to become an independent thinker, a specialized expert, and a master technician in certain areas. Similarly, by undertaking graduate studies toward a master’s or doctoral degree, highly motivated researchers acquire an integral understanding of the functioning of the nervous system, leading to an increase in the number of scientists working in this field.

The Institute of Neurobiology integrates a wide platform of multidisciplinary research on neurosciences.
