Why the UvA?
Students benefit from the wide-ranging, leading expertise available at the Amsterdam Brain and Cognition Center (ABC), the different research labs at the UvA and from the opportunity to participate in research projects led by internationally renowned ABC researchers. The Research Master's programme in Brain and Cognitive Sciences forms a challenging, interdisciplinary and international arena in which highly motivated researchers and students endeavour to understand the brain, its development and its disorders. The Research Master's programme in Brain and Cognitive Sciences is offered by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS), in close collaboration with the Amsterdam Brain and Cognition Center (ABC).
track Cognitive Science
The Cognitive Science track is characterized by its strong interdisciplinary focus on cognition and by its emphasis on a broad overview of mind and brain theories and knowledge.
The Cognitive Science track cuts across traditional boundaries between disciplines contributing to an understanding of cognition and the brain. The programme is at the nexus of disciplines asking how the human mind deals with acquiring, storing, using, and expressing knowledge of the world that surrounds us, and how these faculties are mediated by the brain.
track Cognitive Neuroscience
The focus of the cognitive neuroscience track is on a neuroscientific approach to cognition and is firmly rooted in psychology and biology.
Besides fundamental neuroscience disciplines, brain imaging, systems neurophysiology and cognitive behaviour are strongly represented here. A question characteristic for this track is: “how do neural processes such as spikes and synaptic plasticity give rise to memory, conscious perception and behavioural decisions?” It focuses on how the brain processes information to enable complex cognitive functions.
The track aims at understanding how the brain implements cognitive processes by studying information processing in the healthy, active brain, but also by computer stimulation and interventional approaches targeting causal functions. In this track the pathological brain is equally captivating as the healthy brain and will be high-lighted by studying neurological and psychiatric disorders.
track Behavioural Neuroscience
The Behavioural Neuroscience track offers a programme in which you learn about the molecular and cellular aspects of the brain in relation to behaviour.
It has a strong biological focus with a multidisciplinary approach to neuroscience in relation to cognition. It covers aspects of brain processes like synaptic function, neuroanatomy, brain development and cognitive functions like visual plasticity, stress and anxiety. The topics studied range from single cell analysis to the relation between large brain structures. They cover the wide range of disciplines that collaborate in brain studies: anatomy, physiology, (molecular) cell biology, development and behaviour. The main focus is on understanding brain functions in relation to cognitive processes in its broadest biological sense via in-depth theoretical and experimental training in course work and in the research lab.
