About the course:
Cognitive Neuroscience originated from the collective efforts from domains as diverse as cognitive psychology, neuroscience, linguistics and clinical neuropsychology, among others, and the technological advances in the field of neuroimaging and computation. This interdisciplinary combination aims to discover the brain mechanisms that underlie psychological processes like the language.
This master's degree offers specialised, thorough and rigorous training in Cognitive Neuroscience of Language, which also includes subjects relating to the current knowledge, so that students can subsequently apply the acquired knowledge in their roles as researchers.
The educational programme is aimed at acquiring advanced knowledge about the basic psychological processes, their dysfunctions, the neural bases that support them and the methods of assessment and rehabilitation of these processes.
Furthermore, one of the primary goals laid out in this programme is to teach the major cognitive neuroscience methodologies for their applicability in the social, educational and health care fields, as well as in research projects that may be a part of the new workspaces.
The acquisition of these skills for development of the researcher role is the responsibility of the experts of the domain at a national and international level that are brought together by the BCBL (Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language).
This Master's degree programme gives direct access to the Doctoral Programme in Linguistics and in Cognitive Neuroscience.
