Overview

The specialisation in Neural Computation and Neurotechnology studies the interaction between and within groups of neurons, and how they affect our interactions with the outside world.

Master’s Neural Computation and Neurotechnology: something for you?

- Researchers in Nijmegen combine new techniques for electrophysiological and anatomical measurements of connectivity and activation with data analysis and the experimental application of these techniques.
- Exceptional students who choose this specialisation have the opportunity to do a double degree programme with either Neurophysics or Artificial Intelligence. This will take three instead of two years.
- This competitive programme provides a sound balance of theory and practice. The selective approach guarantees excellence, especially during the research training period.

Programme structure

In the Neural Computation and Neurotechnology specialisation you’ll have ample knowledge of the anatomical and neurophysiological aspects of networks in the human brain and the techniques for the computational analysis and modeling of brain networks. This will enable you to conduct independent research into the neurofunctional architecture of cognitive key functions, such as perception, attention, memory, language, planning and targeted actions and develop technologies to measure, characterise and model networks at the whole-brain level and/or the local cortical circuit.
