Course Summary

MSc Human Neuroscience

Providing an immersive approach to human neuroscience, this MSc provides the knowledge, experience and the key practical neuroimaging/neurostimulation skills to prepare you for a career in neuroscience research. Built around our new Brain Research Imaging Centre (BRIC) you will gain a first-hand technical experience of a range of state-of-the-art neuroscience techniques, including fMRI, EEG, and TMS.

These will familiarise you with all aspects of the neuroscientific process, from the physics of the techniques to experiment design and operational technique, from data analysis and manipulation to the dissemination of original findings.

Careers with this subject

This programme provides the in-depth knowledge and practical training in human neuroimaging designed to put you on a path to a career in neuroscience. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, the direct experience gained using our new state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility will give you some of the most sought-after skills in the discipline. Advanced instruction in neuroimaging data manipulation, signal processing and interpretation then build on these skills. These provide a thorough understanding of the entire neuroscientific research cycle from design to dissemination that will give you a competitive advantage for further study.

Key features

  • Benefit from integration with our new Brain Research imaging Centre (BRIC), offering state-of-the-art facilities for fMRI, EEG, and other neuroimaging and neurostimulation methods.
  • Our hands-on approach to learning embeds practical activities throughout the programme; with neuroimaging advanced practice providing hands-on experience in the operation of advanced neuroimaging equipment.
  • Work with world-leading neuroimaging researchers and engage in an original neuroscience research topic of your own choosing.

Modules

This module provides an overview of key concepts in neuroscience that form the basis of neuroimaging and neurostimulation techniques. It also covers the key principles of major neuroimaging, neurostimulation techniques including electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and (functional) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI/fMRI) illustrating their use in human neuroscience research with examples.
