Urban Dictionary: Masterminds
In October , the research-based Master's programme "Mind and Brain" became part of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, a result of a successful re-application within the national Excellence Initiative. This English-language Master's programme incorporates the innovative research conducted by the Berlin School of Mind and Brain into an interdisciplinary teaching programme.
The programme acquaints students with the most up-to-date approaches to and results of neuroscience research as well as their bearing upon the fields of psychology, philosophy, linguistics, neuroscience and cognitive science. Since the main fields of research conducted at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain - such as Decision-Making, Perception, Attention and Consciousness, Language, Brain Plasticity and Lifespan Ontogeny, Brain Disorders and Mental Dysfunction, and Human Sociality and the Brain - can only be worked on in conjunction with various disciplines, the teaching programme systematically demonstrates how interdisciplinary knowledge can be usefully employed in tackling questions related to specific fields of study.
The Mind and Brain Master's programme is an interdisciplinary course which allows students to select the course content by making a choice between two types of degree and three areas of specialisation based on the subjects in which they are interested - e. Students must decide upon one of the two tracks Brain or Mind at application.
Areas of Specialisation In addition to the differentiation between the two degree tracks, there are three different areas of specialisation in the Master's programme Mind and Brain. The three different areas of specialisation are: 1. Psychology or Neuroscience Students with a particular interest in psychology or neuroscience do two lab rotations in module 13 see programme outline below and choose courses relating to topics drawn from psychology or neuroscience research consolidation in modules 11 or Cognitive scientists and linguists with more of an interest in psychology or neuroscience may also choose this area of specialisation.
Philosophy Students with a particular interest in philosophy develop two theoretical research projects in module 13 see programme outline below and choose courses relating to topics drawn from mind research. Cognitive scientists and linguists with more of an interest in theory may also choose this area of specialisation. Academic Management Students looking to pursue a career in academic management after the Master's programme complete two professional internships in module For this specialisation, good German proficiency C1 is required.
Course Details The core of the Mind and Brain Master's programme is made up of nine core modules neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, cognitive neuroscience, research methods, empirical research training, ethics, philosophy of mind, linguistics, clinical neuroscience, neuroimaging to be taken in the first and second semesters, each of which consists of a lecture and a more in-depth seminar.
Students have to select seven out of these nine core modules. The focus themes and the research consolidations are a continuation of the mandatory courses and build further upon them.
