Neuroscience

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.”
