Course Summary

Our PhD Cognitive Neuroscience programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Cognitive Neuroscience. Cognitive Neuroscience is a dynamic and emerging field of research that seeks to understand how we think, feel and act. The focus of our research is on revealing the mechanisms responsible for these complex neuropsychological functions. Our wide expertise here in Manchester is centred on understanding cognition in both the normal brain as well as abnormal neurological and psychiatric disorders. Thus, a major target for our research is the establishment of translational advances for the treatment of various neuropsychiatric disorders that emerge across the lifespan. While our primary focus is on understanding human cognition, we also use complementary and translational animal models of these processes to reveal aspects of cognition at the neural level.

It includes: Learn from some of Europe's leading researchers while undertaking your own project; Access some of the best research facilities in the world at both the University and in hospitals around Greater Manchester; Undergo training in transferable skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals through the Doctoral Academy's training programme. Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
