MSc
Carly Turnham
Masters study type: Full time Masters study type: Part time

Cognitive psychology and neuropsychology bring together a range of different theoretical frameworks. Cognitive psychological, neuropsychological, neurobiological and computer science approaches can be combined in order to understand how the human mind/brain solves a variety of complex problems, such as recognizing objects, remembering previous experiences, reading, speaking, and reasoning.

The MSc programme will provide an overview and critical evaluation of the major issues, investigative strategies, and empirical findings of recent attempts to integrate these different approaches to 'brain cognition'. We believe Kent offers a distinctive and attractive programme.

The MSc will be composed of 3 compulsory modules and 2 option modules. The compulsory modules are as follows:

1 Advanced statistics and methodology
2 Current issues in cognitive psychology and neuropsychology
3 Dissertation

Module 2 involves a seminar schedule integrated with lectures from internal speakers and external speakers from different universities in the UK and Europe.

Options will include:

• Advanced Topics in Cognition in Action
• Cognitive Neural Networks
• Language Production - Models and Modalities
• Advanced Cognitive (Neuroscience) Methods in Practice

The programme will mainly involve lecture and seminar based teaching. In addition, however, particular option units (such as computational modelling) will require 'hands-on' experience and learning of particular skills. Assessment will be through seminar presentation, extended essays, and research project. Staff contact time will be 8 hours per week. Students will be expected to study for 1,800 hours over 45 weeks
