Understanding the brain and the complexity of life

Understanding the emergence of life from complexity is key to making the right choices. To take care of life, we need to understand how it works.  Also understanding the brain is key as it is the most central player in the physiology of the whole body. In the interdisciplinary Master’s Programme in Neuroscience, you  can choose from two complementary study tracks:

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, from development to aging, and in health and disease.

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.
