University of Birmingham
Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics
This course integrates 2 active and rapidly-developing fields, computational neuroscience and cognitive robotics, to generate innovative strategies and solutions for scientific problems and technological limitations; from modelling human cognition to programming robots to act in their environment, the course crosses the boundary between several disciplines, including biology, neuroscience, psychology, and computer science.
Applicants must have a strong interest in learning in an interdisciplinary environment and substantial quantitative and programming skills; students with good undergraduate degrees from relevant backgrounds are encouraged to apply; these include psychology, neuroscience, computer science, physics, engineering and mathematics.
Modules include: intelligent robotics; brain imaging and cognitive neuroscience; introduction to computational methods; neural computation; mind, brain and models.
Scholarships may be available. International students can often gain funding through overseas research scholarships, Commonwealth scholarships or their home government.
