PhD in Theoretical and Applied Neuroscience

Four curricula to study the complexity of the brain, from cellular mechanisms to cognitive, from computational models to relations with social sciences
Logo PhD neuroscienze

The PhD in Theoretical and Applied Neuroscience is a national PhD course involving scientific institutes studying neuroscience all over Italy, including Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna di Pisa. To tackle the challenge of the complexity of the brain and the whole nervous system, the course is composed by four curricula, covering different tools to investigate the nervous system and the broad range of interplays between neuroscience and the other fields

  • Computational and system neuroscience
  • Cognitive and behavioral neuroscience
  • Neuroscience and Humanities
  • Preclinical, clinical and Translational Neuroscience

Sant’Anna fellowships focus on two aspects: neural activity decoding and stimulation through brain-machine interfaces and in-silico simulation of the effects of pathologies and neural stimulation on neural circuits.
