Types of 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)
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)
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)
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.
