Donders Centre for Neuroscience

At the Donders Centre for Neuroscience (DCN) we aim to understand the complex neural networks underlying perceptual, motor and cognitive brain functions. We study these networks by employing experimental as well as computational approaches.

The DCN consists of five departments and is part of the world-renowned Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour.

Master's Neurobiology

Neurobiology is a specialisation within the Master’s programme Medical Biology, Molecular Life Sciences, and Science (Biology-Chemistry).

This specialisation crosses the boundaries of multiple sub-fields of molecular and cellular biology, life sciences, medicine and behavioural sciences.

Master's Neurophysics

Neurophysics is a specialisation within the Master’s programme in Physics and Astronomy, and the Master of Science (Biology-Physics/Physics-Informatics).

We focus on understanding the neuro-computational mechanisms of the brain and how this knowledge can be used for relevant applications, such as robotics and neuro-technology.
