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.

One of the aims of this graduate program is to train interdisciplinary researchers in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language, to further advance and transfer this knowledge to the areas of Health and Education.

The Master’s program is aimed at university graduates with different degrees who are interested in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language. The duration of the program is one academic year with 60 ECTS credits. The students will develop research skills through the mentorship of experts and by completing internships and the Master Research Project at the end of the program.

It is mandatory to participate in the previous application process run by BCBL.
