Introduction

MSc Computational Cognitive Neuroscience

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 program 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 program 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 program 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.
  • You can do your final research project in collaboration with a variety of international companies, paving the way for employment and internship opportunities. Currently, our panel of industrialists and collaborators includes representatives from Sony Japan, Bayer, Filament, LiquidWeb, and DeepWave Technologies.
  • Graduates of this program will gain a competitive edge in the job market over graduates of other, standard programs in related fields.
