Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience MSc
Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary master's programme involving different scientific fields of natural sciences, technological sciences and humanities as well. The focus of investigations is on the phenomena of cognition – perception, attention, memory, reasoning, thinking and behaviour – from an interdisciplinary perspective: Anthropology, Artificial Intelligence, Biology, Linguistics, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Psychology have contributed to the course's development as core disciplines.
The programme offers a timely approach to answer the deep philosophical question of what is human cognition – ‘Who we are, and what kind of capabilities make us human’, with the help of modern scientific methods, like model building and sophisticated monitoring techniques (eye-tracking, EEG). The relevance of such an approach gains support from the constant need of building a knowledge-based society.
