Plasticity and Memory, M.Sc. in Netherlands 2019

Radboud University

Study in:Netherlands
Deadline: 1 Apr 2019


Why study Plasticity and Memory at Radboud University?

  • Our researchers use genetic, molecular and cellular methods, animal models, as well as human neuroimaging and cognitive neuropsychology. For the latter we work with both, healthy subjects as well as patient groups.
  • This specialisation works closely with the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS), also housed on the Radboud University campus.
  • And the advantages of the Master’s programme in Cognitive Neuroscience in general.

You’ll study diverse brain functions by measuring and manipulating cognitive, emotional, hormonal and neural mechanisms, as well as by (epi)genetic fingerprinting and developing cell and animal disease models. You’ll learn to do research towards patient care that individualises the diagnostic approach and therapeutic and care interventions. Aim is to obtain an optimal fit with patient characteristics and individual preference.

A large majority of our graduates gain a PhD position, while other graduates find jobs in the commercial sector or at research institutes. Graduates of this specialisation may more readily find a position with one a government institution or specialised companies (e.g. in the pharmaceutical industry).
