The main focus of the programme is on cognitive neurosciences. In the first semester, students acquire basic theoretical knowledge in Cellular, Molecular, Systemic, Theoretical and Clinical Neurosciences and practical experience by attending courses of Programming and Laboratory Animal Science. The second term allows students to focus on their individual interests by choosing three advanced practical modules. Consolidation and application of the advanced theoretical and practical knowledge and training of abilities in the area of experimental design and scientific communication is the aim of two lab rotations in the third term. Both can be made in another institute or clinic in Germany or abroad, followed by a Master’s project in the last term.
