Course summary

About This Course

Neuroimaging is an important methodology in modern cognitive and clinical neuroscience of the human brain. It is used to study the physiological correlates of mental processes and it plays a prominent role in the detection, diagnosis and research of neurological and psychiatric illnesses and the evaluation of new treatments. Neuroimaging techniques are growing increasingly sophisticated and as a result there is a high demand in both clinical and research settings for individuals with neuroimaging skills.

The Bangor MSc in Neuroimaging is one of the most well established programmes dealing with modern neuroimaging in the UK. It is exceptional in its focus on both the practical and biomedical aspects of Neuroimaging. Students learn through both taught modules and practical application. Through developing and running their own imaging research project students are afforded the opportunity to participate in novel studies in one of several cognitive and clinical research areas including: social neuroscience, auditory physiology, neurotransmitter dynamics, stroke and acquired brain injury, vision, motor control, and psychopharmacology. Students graduating from the Bangor MSc in Neuroimaging have been extremely successful with 80% either in further higher education, or fully employed in the first year after degree completion.

The MSc is designed to:

provide students with the knowledge and skills to design, analyze and evaluate imaging data.
focus on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), including functional MRI, anatomical imaging, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, and Spectroscopy
examine neuroimaging in the context of relevant applications.
to place a strong emphasis on practical skills with a dedicated computer lab where students learn and apply modern analysis and imaging techniques.

Under supervision of our world-class academic staff students co-design and run a novel imaging based research study using the in-house 3T MRI scanner.

The course is especially suited for:

students interested in pursuing an Academic career in the field of Neuroimaging;
students looking to find a job as research staff in industry or academic labs involved in translational brain research;
medical professionals looking to develop skills in an emergent technology and research field;
students with a background in physics, mathematics or computer science who want to move into cognitive or clinical neuroscience;
students with a background in psychology or biology who want to improve their technical skills for a neuroscience career.
End points for graduates have included:
Funded PhD’s at Bangor, Nottingham, Cardiff
Research posts at Cambridge, John Hopkins, NIH, and Oxford
Clinical assistant posts in Scotland and England
Research Radiographer posts in England.
