Introducción

Is this the programme you're looking for?

In a unique learning environment, you will examine cognitive and emotional processes in the brain.

The study programme in a nutshell

You will gain theoretical and methodological knowledge and skills to tackle questions about brain functioning and cognitive and emotional processes. The training includes current theories and advanced research methodologies, such as behavioural tasks, eye tracking, EEG, fMRI and advanced statistics.

What does this study entail?

We are transported to an imaginary world when we read a story merely by looking at black marks on a white sheet of paper. We can rapidly decide if an animal is a cat or a dog, even though we have never seen a particular animal before. When something in our environment appears to be threatening, we automatically focus on its movement and shape rather than on its colour and other details.

Memory, language, categorisation and emotion are all cognitive functions. Sophisticated and theoretically motivated experimental studies can enable a better understanding of the way the brain operates while executing these functions.
