Understanding the relationship between brain, cognition and behaviour is one of the biggest challenges the scientific community is currently working on. Computational cognitive neuroscience is a young and exciting discipline that tackles these long-standing research questions by integrating computer modelling with experimental research.
This Masters programme will foster a new generation of scientists who will be trained in both neuro-computational modelling as well as cognitive neuroscience. Its core topics include:
- Creating computational/mathematical models of neurons, circuits and cognitive functions
The fundamentals of cognitive neuroscience (brain mechanisms and structures underlying cognition and behaviour)
Advanced data analysis and neuroimaging techniques
The programme is suitable for students from a variety of disciplines including - but not limited to - psychology, computing, neuroscience, engineering, biology, maths and physics. Students with no prior programming experience are welcome.Graduates of this Masters will acquire a unique set of complementary skills that will make them extremely competitive in securing research or analyst positions in both academia and industry.
Why study this course?
- This cutting-edge programme is at the forefront of a new, rapidly emerging field of research.
- It is multidisciplinary, conveying the theory and practice of computational and cognitive neurosciences.
- Graduates of this programme will gain a competitive edge in the job market over graduates of other, standard programmes in related fields.
First or upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent undergraduate degree) in a relevant discipline. Applicants might also be considered if they aren’t a graduate or their degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can demonstrate the ability to work at postgraduate level.
A-levels in Science, Computer Science or Mathematics
Applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Depending on previous background and experience, applicants may be required to take one or more pre-sessional courses (for example in programming, statistics, or maths) prior to the start of the programme. These courses will be free to MSc offer holders.International qualifications
