Inter-university Master’s Degree in Nervous System Sciences: Neurotoxicology, Neuropsychopharmacology, Neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy, Neurorehabilitation - 3rd edition
The Master’s Degree in Clinical and Experimental Sciences of the Nervous System is a blended master’s degree in the field of the neurosciences with three specialities:
- Research into Neurotoxicology and Neuropsychopharmacology (research track). This speciality aims to train future specialists to research into evaluating and characterising the effects of neuroactive substances(effects of neurotoxins from environmental pollutants on living organisms, effects of medicines and abusive drugs on behaviour). The objective is to provide students with multidisciplinary training and the basic and methodological knowledge that enable them to work as researchers in the field of neurotoxicology and psychopharmacology.
- Invasive Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy (professional track). The general aim of this speciality is to learn to examine and treat patients who suffer from problems of neuromuscular pain. Other aims are to use muscle palpation to identify tense bands of muscle and the most common locations for myofascial trigger points (MTP) and to attribute a patient’s pain to the presence of MTP in the corresponding muscles thanks to a knowledge of their pain patterns and the most important semiological characteristics. One of the primary objectives is to correctly apply the main techniques for the conservative and invasive (dry puncture) treatment of MTPs: that is to say, identifying and avoiding the contraindications, risks and complications generated by the various puncture techniques.
- Neurorehabilitation (professional track). The translational objectives of this speciality are to describe the etiopathological reasons for neurological, sensory and cognitive disorders based on experimental data applied to therapeutic situations. This should enable these disorders to be treated using appropriate and well-founded rehabilitation techniques. One of the main objectives is to use such cutting-edge technologies as robotics.
