Welcome to the website of the ABC Journal! We aim to publish the latest research carried out by students from the research master Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Amsterdam, alongside lighter pieces written by members of the journal committee and other affiliates. Each journal features a theme in relation to neuroscience, such as Neuroscience in Society or The Art of Neuroscience. On this website, you’ll find all previous editions, as well as our current publication.
Student Journal – Created entirely by students of the Master’s program Brain and Cognitive Sciences
Research articles, Reviews and Original pieces on Brain, Behavior and Cognition
All content is critically peer reviewed
This issue showcases “The Art of Neuroscience” through several fascinating papers. Four research papers were selected, discussing the use of prosody to mark information structure in individuals with autism, psychedelics and the predictive mind, time distortions, and dissociating contributions of periodic and aperiodic neural activity in human visual working memory. Moreover, the team was inspired by the theme to write about neuroesthetics and to interview Suzanne Dikker, talking about her experimental installations in museums. Additionally, the book ‘Proust was a Neuroscientist’ gets a thorough review and we provide advice to researchers seeking to improve science as a whole as well as their own scientific practices in terms of open science.
