Applied Neuroscience in Human Development (MSc)
The programme of Applied Neuroscience in Human Development is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach. It consists of five substantive courses devoted to the following subjects:
- Developmental clinical neuroscience
- Learning, cognition and the brain
- Neuroscience in clinical assessment and treatment
- Child abuse and neglect, neurobiological aspects and intervention
- Methods and instruments in cognitive and affective neuroscience
In addition, you are trained in research methods and statistics.
An important part of the master specialisation Applied Neuroscience in Human Development is the internship. The research internship is an ‘on the job’ training in doing research, with a focus on getting experienced with using neuroscience methods and techniques – cognitive paradigms, EEG/ERP, heart rate, skin conductance, neuroendocrine measures, eye tracking – for data collection and data analysis.
You conclude the specialisation Applied Neuroscience in Human Development with your Master Project, in which you conduct a research in the domain of this specialisation. You write an individual thesis about this research and also give a presentation about it.
