- Computational Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN)
MSc course at the University of Edinburgh, Informatics.
In this course, we study how computations carried out by the nervous system lead to cognition, in particular perception, memory, learning, and decision-making. We learn to develop and simulate computational models that incorporate data from neurobiology and/or can be used to model aspects of cognition such as measured during behavioural experiments. Such models can be used to understand mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia, autism, addiction, and depression): a domain of application that is emphasised in the second half of the course is the emerging field of computational psychiatry .
All the material for the course is posted on the Learn page.
