Cognitive Neuroscience

How does our brain separate the sound of a Ferrari from the background noise of other car engines, or the face of a friend from other faces in a crowd? How do different parts of the brain interact when we perform everyday activities like riding a bicycle, typing a summary and drinking a cup of coffee? And how are fMRI signals related to neural activity? If these questions intrigue you, the Cognitive Neuroscience specialisation of the master's in Psychology might be a good fit for you. You’ll gain in-depth knowledge of human brain function and cognition, and you'll get practical training in the application of non-invasive brain imaging techniques such as EEG and fMRI. Upon graduation, you'll be an expert in cognitive psychology as well as in neuroscientific methods, leaving you well-equipped for a career in applied and clinical research at universities, research institutes, educational institutes or commercial research organisations....

Do you want to better understand the underlying mechanisms of life? Would you like know more about how you can use biology and mathematics to gain deeper insight into the evolution of animals and plants, the development of diseases and the possibly the development of new therapies? Then Systems Biology is the right programme for you!

Systems Biology will become the mainstream in biological sciences this century. It can be used to systematically gather knowledge at all levels, from molecules to entire ecosystems and its integration into quantitative (computer) models. These models make an accurate simulation of biological processes possible.

This programme will give you the knowledge and practical skills necessary to unravel the complexity of these systems and use it for academic, industrial and societal progress. After you’ve graduated, your ability to unify life sciences and mathematics will make you a great candidate for a career in medical research, drug development and biotechnology.... [-]
