How do we store information in working memory? What changes in that process during ageing? How does mood affect our perceptions?

What brain areas allow you to switch between two tasks? And how does all that mental activity affect the body?

Cognitive psychology and psychophysiology studies cognitive functioning (memory, learning, perception, etc.) of healthy people and in our master track Cognitive Psychology and Psychophysiology you study – amongst others – these questions.

You will learn about the latest theories and insights in this broad area, and you will get hands-on experience with research tools such as advanced reaction time analyses, EEG and TMS. You will put all this knowledge into practice during your master's research project. In the programme, we put a strong emphasis on applications of all the theory you study: over and over again, we will ask “how can we use this knowledge in everyday life?”

Why study this programme in Groningen?

  • International approach;
  • Expert tuition from professionals in the field;
  • Freedom to design the programme to suit your requirements;
  • A lot of individual guidance because of small-scale education.

After your studies

CPP is a broad programme that does train you for a specific job. The skills and knowledge you will gain are useful in many different functions. However, most obvious would be a position as researcher or consultant.

Job examples:

  • Researcher - CPP graduates are well prepared for a career as researcher, for example as PhD student at a university, but also in the private (Philips, Unilever) or government sector (ministries, TNO), or with NGOs(SWOV)
  • Advisor/Consultant - You can use your skills and knowledge as CPP-graduate to advise companies, NGOs of the government about the latest developments in cognitive psychology and psychophysiology, for example in the context of human-computer interaction, or on recent developments such as neuromarketing.
