The Course


This course is a state-of-the-art discipline for both scientists and practitioners interested in the link between brain and mind. Watching and monitoring the activity of the brain while it is processing information provides an incredible window into our human nature. It bridges the gap between several connected disciplines such as cognitive psychology, clinical psychology, medicine, and computer science. The programme emphasizes the theoretical and practical aspects of neuroimaging, and prepares students to work with cutting-edge developments in neuroimaging, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Students will complete a research project using these techniques, supervised by staff who use these technologies in their ongoing research. The course has been developed around training and research in the experimental and analytical methods of cognitive neuroscience. Through our specialist modules, students will learn how to design neuroimaging experiments, analyse neuroimaging data, and be able to evaluate how such experiments contribute to our understanding of the brain mechanisms underpinning human cognition and behaviour.
