The goal of this master's track is to provide insights into recent scientific advances in the field of Neuroeconomics and identify current societal challenges that can benefit from the insights gained by understanding the neurobiological basis of social and economic decision making and the emotional and cognitive processes that support choice. Interdisciplinary fields, such as Neuroeconomics, enable researchers to approach scientific questions from a broader perspective and thereby offer unique advantages that enrich the scientific process by offering multiple levels of analysis. However, this opportunity comes with a specific challenge: understanding the different research methods and theoretical perspectives used across disciplines. To enable students to bridge the disciplines that together compose Neuroeconomics, in-depth training will be provided in Economics, Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology.... [-]

The Master's programme aims to train students to become experts in their specific subfield of the Brain and Cognitive Sciences but with a clear understanding and appreciation of the contribution made by the other subfields. All students complete a core curriculum next to their chosen direction within the Research Master's programme in Brain and Cognitive Sciences. The core curriculum of this programme integrates various perspectives from within the discipline and includes a weekly journal club and an annual summer school, both of which focus on cutting-edge topics in an intensively interdisciplinary setting.

Disciplinary quality and interdisciplinary insights

The goal is to provide a programme that is equal in disciplinary quality to monodisciplinary programmes but in addition trains you to be aware of and understand the separate contributions and research methods of the large number of disciplines that contribute to the field of cognition and thus not suffer the inadequacies of monodisciplines. This enables you to reflect on, interpret and answer complex questions arising in science nowadays and that arise in our modern society. Interdisciplinary thinking cannot be learned from a book but is a skill which develops from the learning process of combining insights of more than one discipline that can lead to new insights....

Social Influence is an English-taught Master's track offered by the Department of Social Psychology. ... [+]

Many organisations and companies benefit from effectively influencing the behaviour of citizens or consumers: Politicians try to win votes, advertising agencies try to increase sales of a particular product, and municipalities try to discourage cycling in pedestrian areas. But what is the best way to approach this?

Social Influence is an English-taught Master's track offered by the Department of Social Psychology.

Why are some advertising campaigns effective and others are not? How do we encourage fewer people to cycle in pedestrian areas? How do we study the effectiveness of measures to prevent tax evasion? An evidence-based approach

For many years intuition, experience, and creativity were decisive factors when designing interventions in human behaviour. However, this did not always lead to effective interventions. A famous example of this concerns a unique forest in the United States: a sign was put up at the entrance informing people that a lot of petrified wood had gone missing as a result of vandalism and theft. However, this intervention actually led to more of the wood being stolen (Cialdini et al., 2006). Closer to home there also are examples of well-known campaigns which are not always the most effective: a billboard with an image of Miffy proved to be more effective at increasing road safety than the “wordt geen slaaprijder” (don’t be a drowsy driver) campaign....

Almost all children hate smoking, yet about a quarter of young adults take up smoking. What changed in-between childhood and adulthood and what can we do to prevent this behaviour?

Similar questions can be asked for binge drinking, problematic use of drugs, and activities that started out as innocent fun, such as gaming, but that have become addictive. Further, overweight and obesity, even in young children, is one of the most important health problems in the western world with an enormous socio-economic impact. What can we do about that?

Psychology: Development and Health - smoking and drinking

Another important topic for health is the role of stress in the development of these behaviours, as stress is widely acknowledged as one of the key contributors in developing addictive behaviours, and obesity. Also, stress is related to drop out of work and decreases in general well-being.... [-]
