The course proposes an approach to the knowledge of the nervous system through the use of different microscopes (Confocal, Transmission and Scanning electron microscopy). It consists of theoretical classes and practical work. The course is oriented to provide notions of applicability of microscopy for the study and understanding of the nervous system in living cells and fixed tissue.
