Plasticity and Memory

Radboud University

Master Postgraduate Nijmegen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Health care, social services and care services
Course summary Studying the mechanistic underpinnings and behavioural consequences of long-term changes in neural structure and function.
Course description Memory is at the very heart of our personality: the countless snapshots of our daily experiences have a pervasive and enduring influence on the self. But how are these memories organised in the brain and how are they given value and meaning? The specialisation in Plasticity and Memory looks at the development and decay of the healthy and the maladaptive brain. The goal is to understand various types of neuroplastic changes in the brain, specifically in patients with for example Alzheimer's disease, stress-related disorders, chronic pain, autism, intellectual disabilities, and ADHD. 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.
Study subjects In the first year you'll become acquainted with the most important theories, models, techniques and analysis methods in Cognitive Neuroscience. The second year of the Master's programme is primarily spent in the laboratory so that you gain ample hands-on experience.
