About

The Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience programme of Eötvös Loránd University involves different scientific fields of natural sciences, technological sciences, and humanities as well.

Overview

The focus of the Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience programme of Eötvös Loránd University is on the phenomena of cognition - perception, attention, memory, reasoning, thinking, and behavior - from an interdisciplinary perspective: Anthropology, Artificial Intelligence, Biology, Linguistics, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Psychology have contributed to its development as core disciplines. The program offers a timely approach to answer the deep philosophical question of what is human cognition – ‘Who we are, and what kind of capabilities make us human’, with the help of modern scientific methods, like model building and sophisticated monitoring techniques (eye-tracking, EEG). The relevance of such an approach gains support from the constant need of building a knowledge-based society. 

Strength of program

Our university has longstanding educational and research traditions in a wide area of fields, including both humanities and science, thus providing an appropriate background for a multidisciplinary field such as cognitive science. The skills and knowledge gained during the programme can be applied in a very wide area of basic research, applied research, and jobs outside the academic field. The students will have the opportunity to work with distinguished researchers on various projects in the university laboratories or join research in our partner institutions. They will have the opportunity to participate in international collaborations on research projects, and the chance to do international training with one of our partner universities.

Career paths

The program provides graduates with the necessary theoretical/intellectual and empirical tools to pursue an academic career (Ph.D. program) in cognitive science or in one of the disciplines related to it. Apart from basic research graduates in cognitive science increasingly find work in applied research: prospective career fields include the IT-sector (interaction design, usability, knowledge management, etc.), education, and biomedical and clinical research, as well as economy. The generic skills (such as teamwork, ability to communicate, reflection and evaluation skills, ability to quickly learn and adapt) acquired by graduates are of use in a variety of careers in the private sector. Graduates of cognitive science are especially suited to work in highly interdisciplinary area, bringing experience in mediating between disciplines. These include the fields of IT and education (see above), as well as the areas of consulting, human resources, and science writing.
