Track in Cognitive, Computational and Social Neurosciences (CCSN)
* This education is delivered free of charge
This research-based, multidisciplinary track focuses on cognitive, computational and social neurosciences, and integrates basic neuroscience methods, including molecular biology and genetics, with traditional experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
Students will attend multiple courses, including fundamentals in cognitive psychology, behavioral and social neuroscience, neuropsychology, psychophysiology, neural basis of perception, neural basis of consciousness, philosophy of science, critical thinking, structural and functional neuroimaging, and basic/advanced methods for data analysis.
In particular, the CCSN track is designed to train researchers who will contribute to knowledge in areas such as multisensory perception, supramodality and cross-modality; sleep and consciousness; action recognition and motor control; neuroplasticity and learning; organization of semantic concepts; neurolinguistics; social and antisocial behavior; decision-making processes in economics and financial environments.
For conducting their experimental activities, students can rely on both in-house and outsourcing facilities. The IMT School has a Cyberphysics Lab equipped for behavioral, psychophysics and EEG (64 and 256 channels amplifiers) research. Functional and structural MRI studies can be conducted at any of the partner MRI scanner sites in Pisa (1.5 and 7 Tesla) and Massa (3 Tesla); EEG and fMRI acquisition could be combined.
Candidates may apply if they have earned at least a 4-year undergraduate degree (in any discipline) by October 31st 2019. Candidates must also have a very good knowledge of English, as it is the official language of the program.
All of IMT School's students receive a generous benefits package:
- Full tuition waiver
- A research scholarship amounting to approximately 1300€/month,
- Additional research funds for study and travel abroad,
- Free room and board on campus for the duration of the four year program.
