It's widely recognised by modern neuroscience that taking a systems approach to exploring the brain is vital to understanding brain function.
Systems neuroscience focuses on the interactions between neural structures in networks that give rise to sensori-motor control and information processing, and it's these interactions that provide us with a foundation for understanding the relationship between brain structure and brain function in the context of the cognitive, perceptual and motor mechanisms that underpin behaviour.
To develop our understanding of this relationship we need to integrate experimental and theoretical approaches. That's why the MSc Systems Neuroscience course has been designed to provide you with interdisciplinary training in cutting-edge approaches to understanding how brain cells interact in networks to contribute to function and behaviour.
