From Neuron to Behaviour: MSc programme on Neural Systems, Cognitive Neuroscience and Brain Function.
A new MSc programme Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience at University of Plymouth, UK. The course is full time for 12 months, and starts in September 2008.

The programme provides a comprehensive knowledge of principles and concepts of brain functioning. It covers anatomy and physiology of brain structures; mechanisms controlling dynamics of neural activity, state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques; relation between neural activity and cognitive functions such as object and sound recognition, attention, memory; and many other topics related to understanding how the brain makes sense of the world and how it organises behaviour.
It is suitable for students from the experimental sciences (psychology, biology and medicine). Students with engineering, computing, physics, mathematics and similar degrees wishing to broaden their horizons toward applications in the field of brain modelling, will also find this programme attractive.
The programme is developed in the Centre for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience (CTCN) ( ).
