Cognitive neuroscience relates cognitive and behavioural functions to the underlying brain systems. Computational neuroscience uses data to construct rigorous computational models of brain function. Put them together and these new disciplines are the key to explaining the relationship between brain and behaviour.
You’ll develop a broad and critical understanding of these two fields, along with an appreciation of different approaches to understanding brain function. Your range of computational and analytical skills, and an ability to generate and test hypotheses, will give you an excellent foundation for further research.
The course takes students from life sciences, the physical sciences and engineering. Appropriate training is given to ensure all students can master the required skills and complete the course successfully.
Teaching is through lectures, seminars and laboratory classes.
Examinations at the end of semesters one and two, written coursework and an extensive empirical research project over the summer.
