The Neuroscience programme at Pablo de Olavide University entails the adaptation to the European Higher Education Area of 5 PhD programmes (4 with a Mention of Excellence) that have been offered to date.



Research in neuroscience is very significant in terms of quality and scale within Spanish biomedical research. All participating universities have a long tradition of specialised training in neurosciences and have important research groups with international projection, with lines of research representative of all fields of neuroscience. The scientific interest of the Neuroscience programme at Pablo de Olavide University, therefore, lies primarily in the coverage of almost all areas of specialisation in a transversally-designed programme, which is essential for training truly competitive new scientists in the field of neuroscience.

Programme Structure

Research areas:

  • Cellular and molecular bases of the neuronal plasticity
  • Molecular and cellular mechanisms related to long-term neuronal plasticity
  • Early detection of Alzheimer's disease based on the combination of different markers
  • Physiology of synaptic transmission
  • Genesis and control of motor commands with particular emphasis on extraocular and facial motor systems
  • Brain mechanisms underlying memory processes and their deterioration
  • Phenotyping procedures of mice and rats using electrophysiological recording techniques (EEG)
  • Learning and memory processes in "Drosophila melanogaster"
  • Neuronal processes that underlie learning and memory in awake animals. Neuronal substrates of appetitive and exploratory behaviour
