Basic Neuroscience Panum Institute, Blegdamsvej 3
A student who has met the objectives of the course will:1. have insight into the anatomy and function of the nervous system across all levels of organization. 2. understand the most commonly used methods to investigate the nervous system. 3. understand, analyze and discuss contemporary neuroscience literature.
The science of tomorrow: new technologies advancing neuroscience (2020) Aalborg University, Fredrik Bajers Vej 7B, B3-104
Description:The purpose of this course is to work as a team and gain a state-of-the-art understanding of technologies pushing the boundaries within neuroscience and neurophysiology. A focus will be how these technologies originated and how these new technologies are being applied to understand disease and pathologies better as well how to treat and rehabilitate.
Embodied cognition – grounded and linguistic bodies Aarhus University
The course traverses the idea of direct experiences as a substantial part of every learning experience. This claim is central to the field ‘Grounded cognition’ (GC), an overall term for new cognitive and neuroscience theories that emphasise situated and bodily cognition (e.g. Shapiro, 2011). According to the CG approach immediate perception of our physical and social surroundings shapes behaviours and actions as well as the co-occurring linguistic knowledge (meaning-making activity) about the situation.
NeuroGrad Winter School Maersk Tower, Blegdamsvej 3
REGISTRATION 1/12/2020 The NeuroGrad Winter School is designed to stimulate networking between PhD students affiliated with the graduate program in neurosciences (NeuroGrad) at University of Copenhagen and networking between PhD students and senior researchers in neuroscience.
PANSS, Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale CNSR meeting room, Psykiatrisk Center Glostrup, Nordstjernevej 41, 2600 Glostrup
The aim of this course is to teach the participants to use the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) PANSS is a 30-item psychometric scale used to measure and monitor symptom severity in psychotic patients. The instrument was developed by Stanley Kay, Lewis Opler and Abraham Fiszbein in 1987. The PANSS is a relatively brief, semistructured interview, requiring 30-45 minutes to administer. During the course the participants will be theoretically introduced to the PANSS.
Electron Microscopy Panum Institute, Blegdamsvej 3
This course is suitable not only for beginners in electron microscopy, but also for those who already use the electron microscope in their work and now want to extend their knowledge of basic principles and more specialized techniques. The course is run in collaboration with the Royal Microscopical Society (RMS).
Receptor Structure and Function Universitetsparken 2, Universitetsparken 2, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø
The objective of the course is to provide a basic knowledge on receptor structure and function and receptor-ligand interactions, and to give an introduction to the fields of molecular biology and 3-dimensional structure determination of receptors.
BrainH2O – to manage intracranial pressure in pathology, we must understand brain fluid dynamics in physiology Faculty Club (16.6)
Our fragile brain tissue is surrounded by a cranium and submerged in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which together serve to protect the brain from mechanical insult. However, in pathologies such as hydrocephalus and idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), excess fluid accumulates in the brain. As our skull cannot expand with increased brain volume, the intracranial pressure (ICP) increases as a consequence, thus compressing brain tissue and blood vessels. Such brain fluid accumulation is considered a vast clinical challenge.
