Course Summary

To disseminate neuroimaging knowledge, skills and understanding, in order to enable effective and efficient use of neuroimaging in research.

Aims of our flexible, intermittent, part-time, online learning (OL) programme: to provide an understanding of research, which uses neuroimaging techniques; to develop research planning & designing skills, incorporating neuroimaging; to enable interpretation & analysis of relevant neuroimaging data; to relate neuroimaging research to clinical applications.

Learning outcomes

Describe imaging theory, techniques, analysis and applications.

Discuss how imaging is used to investigate both normal and abnormal processes and functions (clinically and in research).

Design methodologically sound and practical research that uses neuroimaging.

Analyse results and use statistics relevant to and derived from neuroimaging.

Career opportunities

This programme is an ideal programme to help you in your neuroimaging research-based career, giving you advanced and well recognised expertise in the field.


The aims of this core course are to make sure that the student is thoroughly familiar with: the potential hazards, contraindications and safe operating practices for each type of imaging in both clinical and research environments, issues around clinical and research legislation including data protection, the principles of ethics for imaging research and good clinical practice, regulation of imaging environments and health & safety concerns (technique specific, as well as subject and operator focused issues).
