Cognitive neuroscience is the study of the mind and brain, investigating how and why people perceive, think and act the way they do. The knowledge and skills gained in the Master's course will provide a foundation for advanced scientific research, but also prepare for professional applications in the fields of education, consumer and economic decision making, psychology and clinical research.
The Master's course in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Trento provides research-focused training with a diverse, international group of faculty and researchers.
The two year program combines courses in neuroscience, cognition, statistics, advanced signal and data analysis with hands-on training in cutting-edge research techniques. These include functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), magnetic encephalography (MEG), computational modeling, comparative cognition (animal models), EEG, eye tracking, cinematic motion tracking and psychophysics. For the second year an extensive internship and a research project leading to the Master's dissertation are scheduled.
