The educational programme has been updated in the framework of a grant funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation (grant ID: 075-15-2020-928).
This two-year programme is taught in English and covers a wide range of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience subjects. The programme 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. The programme focuses on the following topics:
• Advanced Neuroimaging
• Visual Perception and Attention
• Emotion and Cognition
• Applied Neuroscience
Computational Sciences is an experimental discipline that focuses on modelling the structure and the functionsof the cognitive and neural processes.
The Master’s programme focuses on the following topics:
• Advanced Computational Neuroscience
• Mathematical Aspects of EEG and MEG Based Neuroimaging
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.
The application process opens usually in late October/ early November. Applicants must submit a resume/CV, letter of motivation, and a statement of research interests, among several other required documents. Applicants are considered for admission based on their application portfolio meeting the programme’s requirements.
