The CdS in Neuroscience mainly prepare an expert in Neuroscience and Neurobiology. Graduates of the CdS in Neuroscience who will complete their training with post-graduate courses, such as PhDs, Specializations and other Masters, can have access to all managerial professions (according to the criteria required by the calls of the individual structures) in research and development divisions in public and private hospitals, IRCCS, pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries, companies and innovative start-ups aimed at the creation of new neurological drugs, new bioengineering technologies for the management, diagnosis and innovative treatment of diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system.


The Degree Course is structured in such a way as to provide an adequate and balanced preparation in the characterizing disciplines and in particular in the field of Biochemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, in which the structural, morphological and functional aspects of the central and peripheral nervous system will be studied in details.

These teachings are preparatory to a correct classification of pathological, diagnostic-instrumental processes and related drug therapies both at cellular and molecular level. These last didactic aspects are guaranteed by the teachings of Neuropathology and Neuropharmacology and Clinical and Advanced Diagnostics, Neurology, Psychiatry, Neurological Rehabilitation.

Ample space is also reserved for the study of Information Processing in Neuroscience, Human-machine interfaces (HMI), including the Brain Computer Interface (BCI), key topics in the sector covered in the Information Processing Systems in Neuroscience course. Rehabilitation Engineering, of strategic importance for a modern computational approach to Neuroscience, will also be addressed.

I chose to enrol in this course because it offers me the possibility of attending a 2nd degree course from a public university, such as UNIPA, at the same time adjusting my necessities of daily life. Indeed, it is the structure of the course that fits in my schedule and not the opposite. This allows me to continue to work and I have not to move to be present, unless to take the final exams.

The organization of the course and the availability of the instructors make the difference as well as the overall extra learning activities and the materials uploaded on the platform.

The natural job placement of graduates of the Master’s Degree in Neuroscience is therefore that of academic research and industrial research, advanced diagnosis, analysis of clinical and biological data in the field of Neuroscience.

Additional areas of work are those of the neuropharmaceutical and neuro-biotechnology industry, currently in strong expansion, as well as the industries producing diagnostic medical devices, neurorehabilitation and neuroprotheses.
