As humans, emotions are intrinsic to our socialization, and influence our cognition and behavior. Study and research the underlying neural networks linked to the experience, understanding, and expression of emotions.

Program Highlights

  • Expand your understanding of the functioning of the brain and which mechanisms are relevant for the interaction of emotion, cognition, and behavior
  • Engage in real-world settings and gain exposure to cognitive and affective neuroscience by visiting labs, practitioners, and institutes in the Stockholm area
  • Travel with DIS faculty on course-integrated Study Tours in Sweden and Paris to meet with leading neuroscience researchers and practitioners

Is This Program For You?

It’s a good fit if you study:

  • Neuroscience
  • Psychology
  • Pre-Medicine/Health Science

Affective neuroscience is an expanding field, as emotions are a complex area of human functioning. You get to delve right into these developments not only through class work, but also by conducting research in the lab.”
