Masters Programme in “Cognitive Neuroscience"

The Masters Programme in Cognitive Neuroscience (LM-51) offers an understanding of the neural correlates of cognitive processes as well as the relationship between the development of the mind and the brain. This programme, which is held in English, aims to train psychologists to identify specific cognitive deficits, evaluate their impact on emotional states and quality of patient life, and adopt appropriate rehabilitative action.

Students conduct supervised research and other educational projects in neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, psychobiology and physiological psychology and can complete their experimental thesis at the Department research labs or at partner labs, including IRCCS Santa Lucia Foundation, CNR Institute of Sciences and Technologies of Cognition, and the Institute of Cellular Biology and Neurobiology.

Applicants will be selected based on their educational career and curriculum vitae. As per EUROPSY requirements, applicants should have completed a substantial number of credits in disciplines related to psychology. There is no admission examination.
