About

The specialisation in Natural Computing and Neurotechnology at Radboud University studies the interaction between and within groups of neurons, and how they affect our interactions with the outside world. You will study the anatomical and neurophysiological aspects of networks in the human brain as well as the techniques for the computational analysis and modelling of brain networks.

Overview

Programme overview

The Research Master's specialisation in Natural Computing and Neurotechnology at Radboud University will give you a theoretical background in Cognitive Neuroscience and conceptual understanding of anatomical and neurophysiological aspects of networks in the human brain as well as the techniques for the computational analysis and modelling 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.

What will you learn?

  • Gain a solid foundation in theoretical notions in Cognitive Neuroscience, Neurophilosophy and Neuroimaging

  • Explore topics that you are passionate about within the field of Natural Computing and Neurotechnology, including machine learning, computer interfacing or quantitative brain networks
  • Get valuable research experience in your field and work with world-class researchers

Career prospects

Graduates of this specialisation can find a position with research institutes, government institutions or specialised companies (e.g. in the pharmaceutical industry).

About 80% of students continue their research in a PhD position.
