Program Description

You will learn how to design, analyse, and evaluate neuroimaging experiments that contribute to our understanding of the brain mechanisms underpinning aspects of cognition and behaviour such as memory, attention, object recognition, neurodegeneration, and brain trauma. You will get in-depth training in cognitive neuroscience research, introducing the principles of neuroimaging and gaining hands-on experience in structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI and fMRI), eletroencephalography (EEG), and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).

Note:
Tuition fees for years of study after your first year are subject to an increase of 3%.
