Computational and Systems Neuroscience MSc
Understanding how the brain works is considered as one of the primary challenges for 21st century science, inspiring ambitious neuroscience research programs around the world including the EU flagship Human Brain Project, the BRAIN Initiative in the USA, and the China Brain Project. Computational and theoretical approaches form a vital part of these neuroscience projects, and are of increasing importance in academic and industrial neuroscience applications.
This one-year, full-time postgraduate degree covers theoretical and practical aspects of modern computational neuroscience, and their applications in areas of cellular, systems and cognitive neuroscience. You will learn the basics of neuroscience and how to apply different approaches from artificial intelligence and machine learning into neuroscience data modelling and analysis. The MSc Project will give you substantial experience with the main steps of undertaking a neuroscience research project, including experimental design, data acquisition, analysis and result interpretation.
