Course summary

This MSc provides the knowledge, experience and the key practical neuroimaging and neurostimulation skills to prepare you for a career in neuroscience research. Built around our new Brain Research Imaging Centre (BRIC) you will gain a first-hand technical experience of a range of state-of-the-art neuroscience techniques, including fMRI, EEG, and TMS. These will familiarise you with all aspects of the neuroscientific process, from the physics of the techniques to experiment design and operational technique, from data analysis and manipulation to the dissemination of original findings.

Careers with this subject

This programme provides the in-depth knowledge and practical training in human neuroimaging designed to put you on a path to a career in neuroscience. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, the direct experience gained using our new state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility will give you some of the most sought-after skills in the discipline. Advanced instruction in neuroimaging data manipulation, signal processing and interpretation then build on these skills. These provide a thorough understanding of the entire neuroscientific research cycle from design to dissemination that will give you a competitive advantage for further study.

Key features

  • Benefit from integration with our new Brain Research imaging Centre (BRIC), offering state-of-the-art facilities for fMRI, EEG, and other neuroimaging and neurostimulation methods.
  • Our hands-on approach to learning embeds practical activities throughout the programme; with neuroimaging advanced practice providing hands-on experience in the operation of advanced neuroimaging equipment.
  • Work with world-leading neuroimaging researchers and engage in an original neuroscience research topic of your own choosing.

Core modules deliver advanced instruction on the fundamental underpinnings of human neuroscience. In-depth knowledge of neuro-anatomy, pharmacology and physiology provide the context for technical instruction on the physics and applications of human neuroimaging techniques and data handling. These then form the basis for skills-based training in the practical aspects human neuroimaging, with hands-on apprenticeships across a range of cutting-edge brain imaging methods. With supervision and guidance of world-class neuroimaging researchers, you bring your new knowledge and skills to bear on a research question of your choice in the neuroscience research project.
