Course Summary

This course is a state-of-the-art discipline for both scientists and practitioners interested in the link between brain and mind. Watching and monitoring the activity of the brain while it is processing information provides an incredible window into our human nature. It bridges the gap between several connected disciplines such as cognitive psychology, clinical psychology, medicine, and computer science. The programme emphasizes the theoretical and practical aspects of neuroimaging, and prepares students to work with cutting-edge developments in neuroimaging, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Students will complete a research project using these techniques, supervised by staff who use these technologies in their ongoing research. The course has been developed around training and research in the experimental and analytical methods of cognitive neuroscience. Through our specialist modules, students will learn how to design neuroimaging experiments, analyse neuroimaging data, and be able to evaluate how such experiments contribute to our understanding of the brain mechanisms underpinning human cognition and behaviour.

Entry requirements

Students normally have a First Class or Upper Second Class Honours Degree in Computer Science, Computing, Science, or engineering-based discipline. You should have a keen interest in the subject of Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging, and a willingness to engage in studying around the topic areas. Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2:1 Honours Degree (or equivalent) may be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Masters award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made.

University information

Liverpool Hope University is set across two green campuses: Hope Park, just four miles from Liverpool city centre, and the Creative Campus, close to the city centre. There is also a small residential campus at Aigburth Park. Over the last 10 years, there has been a significant investment in buildings and equipment of over £76 million. Each year over 1,000 postgraduate students choose to study a range of postgraduate taught, research and PGCE...more
