Description of Neuroscience
Our brain contains many ingenious networks of millions of interconnected neurons. Together, they have a storage capacity and flexibility that far exceed modern supercomputers, or any artificial intelligent system.The Master’s specialisation in Neuroscience aims at unravelling the neurobiological and neurocomputational mechanisms of this fascinating, complex system. You'll study the full spectrum from molecule to man, and from experiment to advanced theory and models.
The specialisation programme comprises five mandatory courses (15 ec) and one specialisation-related internship (44 ec). The intership includes practical work and report. The course Systematic reviews in Neuroscience well as a literature thesis of 6 ec and a theoretical component of 3 ec. A list of available research departments can be found furtheron in this prospectus.
In case you cannot start in September, but enrol later in the year (with permission of the Examining Board), you start with the research internship and take the mandatory courses at the next available option.
The specialisation is open to students in four Master programmes: Physics, Molecular Life Sciences, Medical biology, and Science. Alle have different entry requirements, different final qualifications and therefore also a slightly different structure and programme requirements.
