MSc Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience

University of Sheffield

Masters Degree , Neuroscience

Course Description

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.
