The Master’s program "Cognitive neuroscience" aims to prepare highly qualified specialists in the field of studying the brain and cognitive processes. The program comprises fundamental theoretical training in the field of brain research and neurocognitive processes: neurology, neuropsychology, principles of neuroscience, neurocognitive development of children, methods of brain research and approaches to neurorehabilitation.
The program’s structure is a set of interdisciplinary and applied subjects, which describe the theoretical and methodological fundamentals of neurocogniitive science.
Cognitive neuroscience is the combined study of the mind and the brain. Cognitive neuroscience explores how the neurological organization of the brain influences the way people think, feel, and act.
The Master’s program employs the scientific-practical facilities of the Laboratory of Brain and Neurocognitive Development and Lab of Neurotechnologies with the most advanced equipment: 128-channels Geodesic EEG System 300 with Geodesic Photogrammetry System (GPS) 3.0, SMI RED 500 Eye-tracker, Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development - 3rd Edition (BSID III).
Students can participate in various research projects, including:
