Course Summary

Description

The MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience is aimed at home and international students who are seeking to build on their undergraduate qualifications to develop their project management skills and theoretical knowledge for a career in research or related disciplines. In addition, the course is aimed at those from closely related science backgrounds, to build up a knowledge and practical experience of cognitive neuroscience and psychology, before embarking on a psychology related career.

As the theoretical background to, and techniques of, cognitive neuroscience are rarely available to students at undergraduate level, the main objective of this MSc is to provide you with detailed historical, philosophical, theoretical and practical knowledge of a broad range of cognitive neuroscience techniques. This wide-ranging knowledge will make you an extremely strong candidate for future research positions, and provides you with an ability to develop broad research programmes, utilising a range of techniques, as an independent researcher.

Course Learning and Teaching

The MSc Cognitive Neuroscience is delivered through a mixture of lectures, seminars, practical sessions, workshops and lab placements.

Lectures provide key theoretical information on general topics such as cognition, emotion and neuropsychology, and in depth knowledge of a range of techniques used in cognitive neuroscience research (focusing on their strengths and weaknesses). This core knowledge is then enriched by seminars, workshops, practical sessions and lab placements.

While seminars and workshops allow student-led discussions with the aim of developing your critical thinking, your oral communications and your writing skills, practical sessions provide you with in-depth and hands-on knowledge of selected research techniques as well as programming skills (i.e. Matlab included in the Techniques in Cognitive Neuroscience module) - most wanted key abilities in cognitive neuroscience research. Importantly, practicals also include the application of a range of widely-used statistical tests and a critical understanding of research design, project management and data presentation. All skills that are easily transferable to any future career that you might decide to pursue.

Lab placements are a crowning point of the MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience. They allow you to experience directly the “laboratory life” by observing and helping members of staff calibrating lab equipment, recruiting participants and collecting/analysing data. This is a unique opportunity for you to witness leading experts at work in their own laboratory.

Finally, the dissertation module will give you the opportunity to apply the knowledge of theoretical principles, research skills and statistical techniques during the complete life-cycle of a research project, by undertaking a detailed study of a particular area resulting in a significant piece of independent research.

Outside timetabled contact hours, you are also expected to undertake your own independent study to prepare for your classes and broaden your subject knowledge.

Altogether, the course is focused on supplying you with broad theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical experience in cutting-edge research in cognitive neuroscience and psychology, before you embark on a psychology related career.
