Welcome to the website of Cognito!

Cognito is the student association for the students of the research Master Brain and Cognitive Sciences (MBCS) in Amsterdam – a collaborative effort of the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS) and University of Amsterdam (UvA).

Each year about 50 new students are selected to start the program, divided among three tracks: Cognitive Science, Cognitive Neuroscience, and Behavioral Neuroscience. Students are selected for their motivation, previous grades, and scientific interest.

Cognito offers study-related and non-study-related events to create social cohesion and to support students in their scientific development.
