Course summary

This programme will give you an understanding of the relationship between complex cognitive functions and their underlying brain mechanisms, in patients and healthy individuals, as well as an in-depth knowledge of cognitive neuroscience research techniques and methodologies.

Hands-on research experience will be a key part of your studies. In our state-of-the-art research facilities, you’ll use many of the most important research tools used in contemporary cognitive neuroscience, including MRI, EEG, eye-tracking, brain stimulation (TMS, tDCS), cognitive testing and both standard and computational data analysis. You will also gain PGCert ad PGDip awards in this course.

You’ll learn how abnormal brain functioning can contribute to psychiatric symptoms and diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and drug use and addiction, as well as how cognitive neuroscience techniques can contribute to their treatment.

Career

There are several career pathways this MSc can lead to. The solid understanding of applied cognitive neuroscience principles and techniques, and the experience in research, will equip you with the skills and knowledge required for a career in cognitive neuroscience research, whether in academia or industry. Such skills and knowledge will also equip you to succeed in a wide range of graduate careers, particularly those which require experience in data analysis, scientific and non-scientific communication skills, and skills in writing/publications, including finance, business, medicine, marketing and more.
