Anxiety, depression and related affective disorders are the most prevalent mental health disorders worldwide, but the underlying mechanisms of emotions are also the least understood by modern science. With the Master and Summer School we provide an education in the specialized field of affective neuroscience.
Summer School on Affective Neuroscience
The Summer School on Affective Neuroscience comprises two courses: one on Fear, Anxiety, Obsessions & Trauma, and the other on Mood, Aggression & Attraction. The courses aim at an in-depth analysis of the latest developments in the field of affective neuroscience. They are challenging and intensive, and are an excellent opportunity for clinicians to update their knowledge on the underlying neurobiology of affective disorders and their treatment.
Master in Affective Neuroscience
The Summer School can be continued into the International Master of Affective Neuroscience. This is a postgraduate joint degree programme from the Universities of Maastricht and Florence. The programme teaches scientific competences in the subspecialty of affective neuroscience, dealing with the latest developments in the field taught by leading scientists. The programme is a combination of distance teaching, scientific research and residential courses.
