Cognitive Sciences and Technologies: From Neuron to Cognition at HSE University begins with introductory courses in psychology, mathematics, and neuroscience. It offers two tracks: Cognitive Sciences and Computational Sciences.
Cognitive Sciences is an integration of psychology and neuroscience that examines neural systems underlying complex behaviours like emotions, language, attention, memory, etc.
Graduates of the Master’s programme in Cognitive Sciences and Technologies: From Neuron to Cognition are able to demonstrate proficiency in signal processing, statistical data analysis, and in interpretation of neuronal mechanisms that underlie various cognitive processes. As such, they have been able to pursue careers in international research laboratories and centres, at private companies focusing on user interface optimization and evaluation projects, as well as at universities and schools. They are also involved with projects on brain-computer interface development and clinical application, including pre-surgery brain mapping, neuromarketing, and usability research.
