The neural computation and brain-modeling program

This program is intended for students who have completed a B.Sc. in Neuroscience, Engineering, or Exact Sciences and wish to enhance their understanding of computational research concerning the nervous system. The program meets the growing need in the computational branch of neuroscience, which has been revolutionized in recent years, with the computational aspects becoming increasingly central.


Studies for a university-approved degree in the neural computation and brain-modeling program

In the first year, students will be given the option of performing up to two rotations (three months each) in two of the Sagol School of Neuroscience’s laboratories. During each rotation, students are able to join a research project in the laboratory, learn about the research methods used in their laboratory (no credits), and complete a short research project.


Choosing a supervisor for M.Sc. research

Students must choose a faculty member at the Sagol School of Neuroscience as their final thesis supervisor and receive their written approval for the subject of their research after completing their rotations, toward the end of the second semester, before the start of exams. A supervisor can also be chosen without completing the rotations.


Students can finish auditing their courses in three semesters, and they must submit their final thesis by the end of the fourth semester.


At the end of the second semester of the program, students must present an interim report, which will form the basis for their M.Sc. thesis. If students must complete supplementary classes in the framework of the course prerequisites, the studies will be conducted as remedial courses.
