Emerged from numerous brain storming sessions at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, NeuroTRACT summer school tends to provide interested students in the field of Neuroscience with tools that can help them pick the optimum path to answer their research questions in this field informatively. These tools are meant to be presented in the format of trend neuroscience methods, including Imaging techniques, Animal based tests, psychological assessments and a number of required theoretical materials on the issue.

NeuroTRACT Annual international schools are designed to provide a 7 day long training course. Combined with social and cultural exchange events, the program aims to bring up an alluring integration of fun and team based learning while attaining the necessary knowledge and hopefully skills for elaborating participants’ research questions and help them take some steps toward answering their questions.
