Course summary

The aim of this programme is to help you gain interdisciplinary knowledge “from molecules to mind” and develop research skills in cognitive brain imaging, fundamental neuroscience and brain disorders. Over the last two decades there has been an explosion of interest in brain science across academia, industry and the media. The integration of cognitive brain imaging with neuroscience plays a central part in discovering how the brain functions in health and disease in the 21st century, as illustrated by the Human Brain Project in Europe and The Brain Initiative in the USA.
