The JICN is an international Ph.D. curriculum within the Ph.D. program in Psychology at Bologna University. The JICN provides a new and innovative Ph.D. program in Cognitive Neuroscience that upon successful completion will result in a Ph.D. conferred jointly by the University of Bologna and one of the following partner institutions:

- University College of London, UK

- Bangor University, UK


Cognitive Neuroscience is concerned with how cognitive and emotional functions are implemented via the architecture of the human brain. A key factor in the development of this discipline has been the integration of several academic disciplines that have historically been quite separate. These include: cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, neuroimaging, neurophysiology and neuroanatomy.
