Module Title RMNS-1.0 Introduction weeks RMNS-1.1 Basic (Neuro)science RMNS-1.2 Structure and organization of the nervouw system RMNS-1.3 Neural signalling and computational neuroscience RMNS-1.4 Sensorimotor systems RMNS-1.5 The changing brain RMNS-1.6 Complex brain functions RMNS-1.7 Scientific writing RMNS-1.8 Labtalks and Seminars (every Monday) RMNS-1.9 Research training (throughout the year) RMNS-1.10 Writing and Presenting Research Proposals
During the second year you conduct the experiments as proposed in your project description. After completing the research project you will present the results and write up your master's thesis, in the form of a paper that is of sufficient quality to be published in an international peer-reviewed journal.
You will choose from a list of technical workshops and gain hand on experience that will help you to perform your research. Below the list of workshops you can choose from.
