Are you fascinated by the brain functions that make us see, hear, move, feel and think the way we do? Are you eager to gain the knowledge and skills needed to flexibly apply the most advanced brain imaging and brain stimulation techniques in fundamental, applied or clinical research settings? Then Cognitive Neuroscience is the right choice for you! This highly multidisciplinary programme is embedded in the M-BIC (Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre) and provides you with the theoretical background and hands-on research skills necessary for becoming a versatile brain researcher. Cognitive Neuroscience is an ideal choice for those who aim for an academic or related career focused on understanding normal and/or abnormal brain function.

In the Cognitive Neuroscience specialisation you acquire a unique combination of in-depth knowledge on human brain function, perception and cognition, paralleled with an extensive and hands-on training for using the most advanced non-invasive brain imaging (including fMRI, fNIRS, DWI, EEG/MEG) and brain stimulation (TMS, tDCS) techniques. The obtained knowledge and skills provide an excellent background to flexibly apply these techniques in fundamental as well as applied and clinical research settings.

This teaching programme covers relevant topics of Cognitive Neuroscience and reflects the research expertise of the ‘Cognitive Neuroscience’ group at the Maastricht Brain Imaging Center (M-BIC). By addressing key issues in perceptual and cognitive brain research, you will build a detailed understanding of how the ‘working’ brain perceives, feels, moves, learns and creates a conscious mind. Specific course topics include auditory and visual perception, attention, language, sensorimotor functions, learning and memory as well as brain connectivity and connectomics and neuroimaging in disorders of consciousness.

Moreover, you learn to translate this knowledge in empirical research by extensive hands-on training in all aspects of the experimental cycle, including experimental design, recording and manipulating brain activation, and advanced data analysis. Methods that you will learn to apply include (f)MRI, fNIRS, DWI, TMS, tDCS, EEG/MEG as well as data analysis in Matlab, EEGLAB, Brainvoyager and Turbo-BrainVoyager (neurofeedback).
