Master

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.

      Want to know why others made the decision to join PREMIUM? Here are some! Applying is possible untill November 20th (www.edlab.nl/premium)

      "Premium helps you gain understanding and increase your respect for diversity in views and cultural backgrounds, an experience that does not always happen when you start working. So my advice to any potential participant is “make the most out of it! It will be a great and valuable experience.”
      “I am interested in finding out how to cope with the uncertainty of the real world and want to develop the skill of taking decisions when perfect information is unattainable. In addition, I greatly value the chance of creating something unique and the responsibility of seeing it through to the end, rather than merely analyzing what other people have done.”
      "During PREMIUM you are put in an environment which you don’t get by only studying. The interaction with real clients, together with workshops and personal coaching is a unique and precious opportunity you should not miss.”
      “I have learned a lot from the experience of Premium project and workshops! It is definitely one of the most influencing and unforgettable things in my life."
