How can we increase the effectiveness and memorability of an advertisement? Can we tell from someone's pupil size if they are getting tired, for instance while driving or operating a machine? How did researchers working at Memorylab succeed in using a computational model of memory to develop an app that enables students to study more efficiently?

In the Applied Cognitive Neuroscience master, you will acquire foundational knowledge and skills that will allow you to work in a variety of different industries where insights from cognitive neuroscience are used to help in preventing cognitive errors and improve human functioning.

Foundational knowledge and skills are taught in high-level courses by top scientists in cognitive neuroscience. Subsequently, you will conduct an internship and a research project in which you are trained in creating applications and independently setting up and carrying out research to test the effectiveness of these applications.
