Study Neuroscience or Cell and Systems Physiology

We are conscious, we sense, we feel and we act because of our brains. The brain coordinates and is affected by bodily functions, and it integrates the information about the outside world conveyed by our senses – it is the central player in the physiology of the whole body.

The Master’s Programme in Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary programme with two complementary study tracks:

The Neuroscience study track provides you with an understanding of both fundamental and ​cutting-edge neuroscience, studying the brain and the entire nervous system at different levels of organization, from genes and molecules to nerve cells and networks; and beyond.

The Cell and Systems Physiology track provides you with a holistic view of the integrated mechanisms that govern the functions of organisms, from cells to functional systems.

Our program is also available for students on the Biology Teacher study track.
