New MSc/MA course: Cognition and Computation, LONDON

http://www.bbk.ac.uk/study/pg2011/psychology/TMACGCOM.html

NEW MASTERS PROGRAMME IN COGNITION AND COMPUTATION Birkbeck University of London Central London


This programme studies the cognitive processes and representations underlying human thought, 
knowledge and behaviour. It integrates a wide range of disciplines and methodologies with the
core assumption that human cognition is a computational process, implemented in neural hardware.

The programme involves intensive training in experimental design and methodology, building 
computational models, and carrying out a substantial piece of original research.

The course is suitable for students who wish to pursue a research career in cognitive modelling,
cognitive science, cognitive engineering, and cognitive robotics. Graduates may also go on to 
careers in psychology, visual sciences, and other disciplines where computer simulation is used.
