The goal of the school is to equip participants with theoretical knowledge on recent advances in pathological mechanisms, diagnostics, and treatment of brain-related disorders covering neurological, neurosurgical and neuropsychiatric diseases. Basic techniques in systems and clinical neuroscience with regard to laboratory skills including DNA/RNA extraction, real-time qPCR, immunohistochemistry, and neuropsychiatric testing will be introduced. After completing this school, participants should understand the fundamentals of neuroscience and be able to practice basic techniques including immunohistochemistry and behavioral testing.
