In this Brain and Cognition programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam you will gain theoretical and methodological knowledge and skills to tackle questions with regard to brain functioning and cognitive emotional processes. The training includes current theories and advanced research methodology, such as behavioural tasks, eye tracking, EEG, fMRI and advanced statistics.
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.
The Brain and Cognition master track prepares you for a successful career in academia or industry. Graduates of our programme have found positions in academia, both in the Netherlands and abroad (e.g. the UK or Australia), as well as in industry and in administration, working as, for instance, policy advisors.
