The Center for the Study of Behaviour fosters education in behavioral neuroscience by means of three different approaches :
By hosting and coaching pre-master, master and pre-doctoral students willing to get familiarized with the analysis of rodent behaviour. Albeit some support can be provided to foreign students in form of lodging, stages at the CEC are normally not remunerated.
See below for a list of students who spent a training period at CEC.
By helding an annual course on methods in behavioral research, called Measuring Behaviour.This course is mainly focused on issues of experimental design, technical troubleshooting and confounds, rather than on neurobiological aspects.
By inviting behavioral scientists to give scientific seminars with an accent on methodology and novel approaches. (See below)
