About the institute About the institute Institute activities
About the institute The Institute currently (end of 2008) has 40 staff researchers composed of 21 university professors and lecturers and 19 CSIC researchers and senior researchers. Five additional investigators have tenure track contracts with the UMH or CSIC through the Ramon y Cajal Research Program. The "Remedios Caro Almela” Chair of Developmental Neurobiology sponsors a further Professorship.

The IN frequently receives visiting scientists through European, national and private programs such as BBVA Foundation International Chair. The IN belongs to the Networks of European Neuroscience Institutes (ENI-net) dedicated to the promotion of the independent work of young investigators.

Personnel, including technicians, administrative and other support workers, are funded at the IN by their respective institutions (UMH or CSIC), which also provide yearly funding for the running costs. The IN researchers receive competitive funding from public and private institutions to the sum of approximately 50% of the yearly total expenditures.

The IN has an Excellence PhD Training Programme in Neurosciences, providing courses and research training to European graduate students in several areas of basic neurosciences. The program leads to a degree of Doctor of Philosophy. All courses of the program are given in English and have assigned an appropriate number of ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits to facilitate the recognition of completed courses at other institutions. This includes a weekly seminar programme. In addition, members of the IN organize international courses and workshops open to the European scientific community.

Currently the Unit of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging provides state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance (MR) equipment and scientific advice in MR to public and private research institutions.
