Programme of Neuroscience
The master specialisation Neuroscience comprises of:
|A.||Mandatory courses - Physics and Astronomy, Neuroscience||18 EC|
|B.||Elective courses - Physics and Astronmoy||24 EC|
|C.||Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy||60 EC|
|D.||Professional Preparation||1 EC|
|F.||Free electives||14 EC|
Note: In order to create a coherent programme that prepares you for a Master's thesis contact the coordinator:
A. Mandatory Programme (18 EC)
|Quarter 1||Quarter 2|
|NWI-NM001B Electrodynamics (3 EC)||NWI-NM103B Methods in Neuroscience (3 EC)|
|NWI-BM044B Systems Neuroscience (3 EC)|
|NWI-BM053B Behavioral Neuroscience (3 EC)|
|NWI-BM059 Systematic Reviews in Neuroscience (6 EC)|
B. Elective courses (24 EC)
Elective courses should be chosen in consultation with the prospective supervisor or the coordinator of the master specialisation. Note that the selected electives should add up to a minimum total of 24 EC.
Depending on your field of interest, the following courses are highly recommended:
Experimental Neurophysics: ENP
Computational/Theoretical Neurophysics: TNP
|NWI-NM100B Student Seminar Neurophysics (2 EC)||X||X|
|NWI-NM050B Psychophysica 2 (6 EC)||X|
|NWI-NM080B Quantitative Brain Networks (6 EC)||X||X|
|NWI-NM047C Computational Neuroscience (9 EC)||X||X|
|NWI-NM048C Machine Learning (9 EC)||X|
All Neurophysics elective courses are found here. However, you are not restricted to this selection of Physics and Astronomy courses.
The Educational tour can also be used as an elective course within your Master's.
C. Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy (60 EC)
D. Professional Preparation (1 EC)
E. Philosophy course (3 EC)
F. Free Electives (14 EC)
Free electives can be chosen from other master specialisations or programmes, not necessarily within Physics and Astronomy.
