#HumansofFPN - Vassilis: master's student in Neuropsychology
I happened to spend a day here about 8 years ago, when I was still a psychology undergraduate. The beauty of this small town won me over right away. I remember saying to myself “I could definitely live here someday”, and so I did. When I decided to do my Master’s, Maastricht University was one of the first choices. I had also heard a lot of good things about the FPN, which made my decision even easier!
I was always fascinated by the relationship between the brain and human behaviour, thought and emotion. By doing my master’s in this field I have the opportunity to deepen my understanding of this relationship. The technological advantages of our time allow us to comprehend the mechanisms of the human brain in profound and novel ways. I want to be part of this process.
What’s it like to do your own research?
It is rather intriguing. Interacting with people of different age, educational and cultural background is very new and exciting to me. Besides that, being part of a research project gives you the opportunity not only to obtain but also create new knowledge. And this is probably the most satisfying part of it!
