Why choose this programme option?
Cognitive neuroscience is the study of the neural mechanisms underpinning cognition.
In this program, three themes are in focus: Basic mechanisms of brain and cognition, advanced methods, and lifespan development of brain-cognition plasticity and interaction.
Laboratory training in a broad range of research methods relating to the brain and the mind is provided. The brain and the mind are seen as integrated dynamic processing systems developing through the human life span, and the program illuminates major systems underlying memory, attention, problem solving and others.
