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

Completing this exciting programme will equip you with skills and knowledge that prepare you for a range of PhD opportunities in cognitive and clinical areas of psychology, neuropsychology and neuroscience. It is also good preparation for some other forms of postgraduate training, and students seeking careers in data analysis and certain allied health care professions.

Modules

This module aims to provide an in-depth knowledge of the core cognitive and affective processes and the neural networks implicated in these processes, to provide a sound understanding of specific cognitive and brain dysfunctions in neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism or schizophrenia, and to provide an insight into the role of genetics and individual differences in cognitive and brain functions and the continuum theories of psychopathology.
