Imperial College London
Bioinformatics of Behaviour
The programme applies methods from computing; physics; and engineering with experimental studies in humans to understand our brains and behaviour from 1st principles; research is centred on a basic characteristic of biological systems: the variability of behaviour; variability can be observed across many levels of biological behaviour: from the movements of our limbs, the responses of neurons in our brain, to the interaction of biomolecules; the research applies theoretical frameworks from engineering and computer science to study the brain's function and structure quantitatively; researchers are especially interested in the relationships between brains and behaviour, as movement behaviour is the only way through which the brain can interact with the world.
A 2.1 Honours degree and a Master's in a relevant subject area.
