Types of Modules

Background Modules

Provide background knowledge on a neuroscientific topic. Courses for 8-20 students are organized in full-time blocks of 2-7 weeks and usually consist of lecture, seminar and hands-on practical parts.

 

  • Development & Evolution (9 + 6 CP)
  • Computational Neuroscience (9 + 6 CP)
  • Molecular Genetics & Cell Biology (15 CP)
  • Biochemical Concepts in Signal Transduction (15 CP)
  • Neurosensory Science & Behavior (9 + 6 CP)
  • Neurophysiology & Neuroanatomy (9 + 6 CP)
  • Neurocognition & Pychophysics (15 CP)

 

 

Research Modules

Are individual student research projects in the supervisor’s lab. The aim is to practice independent research, including experiments, background literature and presentation of results. Lab time lasts 6-7 weeks.

 

  • Auditory Neuroscience (15 CP)
  • Molecular Sensory Neuroscience (15 CP)
  • Neural Basis of Perception (15 CP)
  • Visual Neuroscience (15 CP)
  • Computation in Sensory Systems (15 CP)
  • Development & Evolution of the Auditory System (15 CP)
  • External Research Project (15 CP) 

 

 

Skills Modules 

Professional skills are developed in courses for up to 24 students.

 

  • Neuroscientific Data Analysis in Matlab (6 CP)
  • Statistical Programming in R (6 CP)
  • Bioethics (6 CP)
  • Molecular Mechanisms of Aging (6 CP)
  • Laboratory Animal Science (6 CP)
  • Scientific English (6 CP)

 

Elective

After approval by the program director, 30 CP (one semester) can be chosen from: 

  • All courses of the M.Sc. Neuroscience curriculum
  • From related Master programs, e.g. Biology, Neurocognitive Psychology, Audiology, Computer Science
  • Up to one semester at an international university 

Many Neuroscience modules contain shared course components with the Master’s programs Biology and / or Neurocognitive Psychology. Here is a list of courses that cannot be credited twice.
