Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

Apply knowledge from Brain and Cognitive Sciences to answer important societal questions. Students learn to set up applied experiments, and to translate empirical findings into practical advice.


Society's interest in the brain and mind has exploded in recent years. This is due in part to increased scientific knowledge about the relationship between cognitive functions, like attention and memory, and performance in every-day life, as well as to technological advances that have provided unprecedented insight into the brain's workings and new methods that allow continuous monitoring of behavior or cognitive and bodily functions (e.g., internet, wearables, smartphone apps). The primary focus in the curriculum of the master track Brain and Cognition in Society is on how theoretical and methodological knowledge from the field of brain and cognition can contribute to answering societal questions.
