Society's interest in the brain and mind has skyrocketed in recent years. This is partly thanks to increased scientific knowledge about the link between cognitive functions, like attention and memory, and performance in daily life; however, technological advances have also provided unprecedented insight into the brain's inner workings, along with new methods that enable continuous monitoring of behaviour or cognitive and physical functions (e.g. the Internet, wearables, smartphone apps).
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home.
Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes,explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
