The program is built around three windows into the human psyche: cognitive models and theories about mental functions, patients with a neurological disorder or brain damage and neuroimaging techniques that help show the brain in action. By integrating these perspectives we enable you to take part in one of the greatest scientific endeavors of our time: unraveling the mysteries that have surrounded the human mind for centuries.
During the curriculum you will be taught by renowned professors, who are among the best in their field. Many enjoy international recognition thanks to valuable contributions to their area of research within cognitive psychology or clinical neuropsychology.
Our staff members are known for their approachability and they provide a safe learning environment. You will be assigned a personal mentor to help monitor your academic progress and well-being throughout your studies.
Opting for this Research Master’s programme brings you into an inspiring research environment with state-of-the-art empirical tools that empower you to probe brain and cognition in groundbreaking ways. You are provided with opportunities to do so by means of eye-tracking, EEG, tDCS, fMRI and more. Moreover, we call attention to methods and statistics (see more) to further develop your capabilities to design experiments properly and perform sound analyses on the data you collect.
