Workshop “Introduction to experimental neuroscience”

For Master and doctoral students from various disciplines (biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, psychology, medicine, pharmacy…). This workshop offers a unique opportunity to discover methods and concepts in neuroscience research through hands-on training within the premises of the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience. Participants from various fields of science follow case-based training by taking part in mini-projects supervised by experienced doctoral students and international experts in neuroscience.


This workshop focuses on basic neuroscience concepts and methods. It includes short lectures and hands-on experiments through mini-projects covering questions and techniques used in modern neuroscience research laboratories.

Topics covered will include:

  • Cell biology and imaging
  • Molecular and cellular biology, transcriptomics
  • In vivo surgery, gene transfer
  • Anatomy, brain clearing, connectomics and electron microscopy
  • In vitro electrophysiology and optogenetics
  • In vivo electrophysiology and imaging
  • Behavior
  • Human neuroscience
  • Neurocomputation

What will you gain from this experience?

This project-based training will allow participants to:

  • Better understand basic experimental approaches in neuroscience research
  • Directly perform the experiments
  • Strengthen their international scientific network
