Course Summary

Overview

Data capture and analysis techniques to understand brain-behaviour relationships are continually emerging, creating a need for in-depth knowledge of neuroscience methods and their applications to understand brain function when healthy through cognitive neuroscience, and when disease strikes through clinical neuroscience.

The development of new strategies combined with the availability of large cognitve, neuroimaging and genetic data sets from healthy and clinical populations from different parts of the world have created a need for trained individuals to use these resources for scientific advancement and to improve human health. The Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience MSc has been designed to address this need.

On this course, you will develop a detailed understanding of the historical and contemporary concepts and theories underpinning our current understanding of human brain-behaviour, innovative neuroscience methods and their application to understand brain function, and the core cognitive and affective processes and associated neurology. You will also be equipped with specialised analytical skills that will allow you to assess and interpret neuropsychological function in healthy and clinical populations, and will be able to report research evidence as a result.

Whilst studying either one year full-time or two years part-time, you will be taught by a multidisciplinary team of experts including psychologists, psychophysiologists, neuroimaging researchers and clinical scientists. The academics teaching the course are making advances in cognitive and clinical neuroscience, and will lead with their research so you will receive the most up-to-date knowledge in this field.

Careers and your future

After graduating with a Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences MSc you may wish to undertake further postgraduate research at PhD level or pursue a professional doctoral clinical psychology training course or postgraduate qualification in psychiatry, nursing or allied disciplines.

Your skills will equip you for careers in the academic, clinical/healthcare and pharmaceutical industry setting in a variety of roles, from analytical and clinical research to sales and marketing.

The variety of assessments in this programme will provide you with the relevant skills for employment within the scientific communications industry, as well as within the scientific writing and journal-editing professions.

Modules

This module will provide students with a comprehensive insight into cognitive enhancement in normal and atypical populations using psychological interventions, a thorough account of environmental and lifestyle factors that may promote, or have adverse effects on, brain functions, and a critical review and discussion of evidence on current/potential psychological interventions to promote neuroplasticity in health and disease.
