Course Concept and Aims
The NR course (20 points) is designed specifically for Neuroinformatics DTC students. This is a bespoke course in which students are exposed to a variety of research subjects in Neuroinformatics. Proposal writing skills will be introduced and practised through assignments. Attendance is obligatory. This course counts towards the research component of the MSc.
