The Master's in Behavioural Science distinguishes itself internationally by its multidisciplinary approach and the special laboratory facilities that are available for studying human behaviour. [+]

Why are there so many people called Dennis living in Denver, for example? And why does one person become addicted and not another? Behavioural scientists at Radboud University know the answers. The Master's in Behavioural Science distinguishes itself internationally by its multidisciplinary approach and the special laboratory facilities that are available for studying human behaviour.

Unique facilities

The Master’s programme is closely related to the research being carried out in the internationally renowned Behavioural Science Institute. This institute has several unique facilities for carrying out experimental research. One example is our Virtual Reality Laboratory where we can observe people’s (often unconscious) behaviour. In order to study the way in which addicts behave we have a Bar Lab. Our mobile lab is also unique. This EEG bus makes it possible for us to measure processes in the brain at specific locations like school, for example. Finally, we are able to use the new EEG, fMRI and MEG facilities of the Donders Institute for Neuroimaging. Of course you too – as a Master’s student – will be able to use these facilities to increase your capacity to manage new experimental research techniques.... [-]
