The Cognition and Brain program
Studies in this program aim to provide students with in-depth knowledge of the neural basis of cognitive processes, including attention, perception, memory, and decision-making. The program focuses on research of the human brain and offers both theoretical and methodological knowledge, including a variety of courses on brain research methods including MRI, EEG as well as behavioral methods.
