Cognitive rehabilitation is a rapidly emerging field that integrates research and clinical practice within the field of cognitive neuropsychology and neuroscience and applies it to the development and evaluation of evidence-based assessment and intervention. This course has been carefully designed to provide graduates from psychology, the life sciences and allied health professions with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience to develop their clinical skills, academic rigor and research expertise. The interdisciplinary nature of the course will provide you with a strong background in brain anatomy and function, clinical neuroscience, cognitive neuropsychology and cognitive rehabilitation ensuring that you have training and practice in assessment, targeted rehabilitation and the ethical and professional aspects of working in a clinical setting. Course content: The focus on professional learning is supported with a work experience module that offers you the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a clinical setting. An independent research project provides you with a chance to develop your specific areas of interest with the supervision of a member of staff with relevant clinical, academic and research expertise.

Associated careers: This course is particularly suited to pursuing a career in a clinical setting, preparation for further psychology training (eg clinical psychology) or clinical research or meeting the requirements for appointment or promotion with certain employers. The course also develops generic higher education and career management skills that would be of use in a wide range of careers.

Research Project with Portfolio - Core

The Project in applied cognitive neuroscience is an extended piece of work on a relevant topic that you will select with the approval of the course leader. The topic will draw on knowledge, skills and methodological techniques covered by the course. This may involve an in-depth exploration of one aspect of the taught course or a related aspect not formally covered in depth. On completion of the project, you are required to submit a journal-style paper, a reflective commentary and a research portfolio. You will have this module in full time and part time mode.

Physiology and Anatomy of the Brain - Core

This module explores the neuroscience that underpins brain function, from the functions and processes of a single neuronal cell to the complex anatomy and mapping of the brain. It will encourage you to examine methods and techniques commonly used in neuroscience. You will have this module in full time and part time mode.

Clinical Neuroscience - Core

This module gives you the opportunity to investigate in some depth the neuroscience of a range of clinical disorders, and to think critically about how this contributes to our overall understanding of cognition. You are encouraged to think critically about research in this field, with emphasis on treatment strategies. You will have this module in full time and part time mode.
