Explore the intricacies of brain and cognition

How do you look for a friend in a crowd? How do you study while listening to a song of your favorite band? What is your brain actually doing when you are engaged in such activities? And what happens when the brain is damaged, such as in the case of dementia?

This two-year Research Master’s programme operates on the cutting edge between cognitive psychology and clinical neuropsychology. While cognitive psychology is geared towards general theories of human functioning, clinical neuropsychology focusses on individual patients with brain damage. Understanding their condition can often provide new insights into how the human brain works.

Combining these two approaches into one Research Master’s programme is unique in the Netherlands.
