M.Sc.-Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience
Cognitive and computational neuroscience provide the foundation for understanding the relationship between brain function and the cognitive, perceptual and motor mechanisms which underpin behaviour. Specifically, computational neuroscience utilises neuroscientific data to construct rigorous computational models of brain function, whereas cognitive neuroscience relates cognitive and behavioural function to its underlying neural substrate. Together, these new and interdependent disciplines provide the foundation for meeting one of the key scientific `Grand Challenges' of the twenty-first century: elucidating the relationship between brain and behaviour.
This course is directed primarily at students who wish to pursue a research career in some aspect of cognitive or computational neuroscience. It is designed for students from two streams: those in life sciences who wish to learn theoretical and computational techniques, and those in physical sciences, mathematics and engineering who wish to apply their technical knowledge in the brain sciences.
