Course summary

Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience explores how the mind changes as children grow up, examining the environmental and biological influences on the developing brain.

You'll be provided with perspectives from developmental cognitive neuroscience and developmental and cognitive psychology and receive hands-on training in brain imaging methods.

You'll explore topical issues such as the neural bases of perceiving, acting in the physical and social world, the development of emotion regulation and pro-social behavior, and neuroeducation.

Teaching format

You'll be taught through lectures, seminars, practicals and group work by academic experts within the Department of Psychology as well as external experts from other academic institutions. As the course progresses, you'll have greater independence with the emphasis being on choice, specialisation, and independent study, all supported by supervisors.

Seminars focus on small group work, discussions and presentations. You will gain knowledge in all aspects of research, from designing and carrying out experiments to analysing, critically evaluating and interpreting results. This experience will equip you with valuable skills that you will apply in your final empirical project.

Careers and skills

This MSc will enhance your transferable skills as well as the skills required for careers in a range of industries. A high proportion of our graduates go on to complete PhDs in neuroimaging, developmental psychology or neuropsychology. Others gain further research experience before undertaking a PhD or training in Clinical Psychology; or find work as Assistant Psychologists and Research Assistants.
