Program Description:

Master’s Program in Cognitive sciences and technologies: from neuron to cognition offers advanced and combined cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience and modeling.

Only relatively recently we started to understand the specific molecular, physiological and cognitive mechanisms underlying our behavior. This MS Program focuses on contemporary research. Students attend lectures in English and practice in the leading laboratories of Moscow and our European partners. The program has strong links with research labs in Moscow's academic institutes. Leading scientists supervise students' practical training and the writing of a Master's thesis in the second year.
