Cognitive Neuroscience is designed to unravel the way human brain works by exploring the cognitive and neural basis for mental functions such as perception, action, language, attention and memory.
The Master of Science programme Cognitive Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary research-master’s programme of the Radboud University and the Radboud UMC. This relatively young discipline seeks to unravel the workings of the human brain.The research Master’s programme offers four specialisations that coincide with the research themes of the Donders Institute: (1) language and communication, (2) perception, action and decision-making, (3) development and life-long plasticity, and (4) natural computing and neurotechnology.The programme is an excellent opportunity for students who want to prepare themselves for a career as a researcher. Next to coursework, the programme offers the student many opportunities for hands-on research experience. The MSc CNS programme is internationally oriented. All courses are in English.
