MSc - Master of Science
Neuroscience / Neurobiology Cognitive Psychology
The recent advancement in technology that allows us to measure and probe brain function and mechanism means there is a mass of new data to inform our understanding of the brain. Explaining this data and understanding it requires a theoretical framework to work with. Cognitive neuroscience provides this framework and a powerful explanatory basis to understand the mind and its causal relation to the brain. This MSc by Research course will give you the practical skills required to conduct cognitive neuroscience research and the expertise in neuroimaging and brain stimulation techniques.
