Research excellence

Research across the subject of Psychology attempts to advance our understanding of behaviour and the underlying mental processes and brain functions at multiple levels of analysis. This effort entails the integration of diverse approaches and paradigms from experimental psychology, cognitive science and the cognitive neurosciences.

We are committed to producing basic and applied research of the highest quality with a focus on three main areas:
-An interdisciplinary effort to advance the understanding of the complex relationship between the brain, cognition and behaviour. This brings together researchers with an interest in cognitive neuroscience, functional neuroimaging, neuropsychology and computational modelling. The Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCNi) aims to develop new methods for understanding brain mechanisms, and to train interdisciplinary scientists in the use of those methods and techniques.
-The new science of social interactions, a science that blends behavioural, computational and neuroimaging techniques to investigate human social function, communication and cooperation. Our research examines a range of mechanisms that underlie social interaction: from gestures and expressive signals, from the face, voice and body to language-based communication. We have special interest in how such local interactions affect the dynamics and structure of larger scale social networks.
-Further research areas include sleep, language, visual perception, computational methods, memory, thought and social interaction.

Career prospects

As this programme complies with ESRC requirements, successful graduates from the programme are eligible for +3 ESRC PhD studentships. The majority of our graduates have obtained PhD funding or secured a research or teaching position. Others have opted for further professional training in specialised fields of psychology. Some graduates have used the qualification and skills to advance in their current employment.

Graduates of this programme have gone on to positions such as: Assistant Psychologist at NHS and PhD studentships at Glasgow University or other HEIs in UK or abroad.

Structure, content and assessment

The MSc is a part-time course, spread over two years. During that time you will complete eight modules, providing a comprehensive overview of sleep medicine that is in line with the European Sleep Research Society's teaching and training guidelines. These modules include:

The Physiological Basis of Sleep
Introduction to Sleep Medicine and Methodological Approaches
Circadian Rhythm Disruption and Sleep
Insomnias
Sleep Disordered Breathing and Sleep-related Movement Disorders
Hypersomnias and Parasomnias
Sleep in Specialist Populations
Sleep and Society

Each module will be assessed by an extended essay, entailing a total of four extended essays submitted every academic year: two at the end of the second and third terms. Throughout the course you will be expected to work on your dissertation, which is the final piece of coursework, to be submitted at the end of the course. This will take the form of a systematic review and a research study design, including ethical considerations and budgeting. To support this process you will also have to complete two modules in research methods.

Pattern of teaching, learning and supervision

The course is designed to give as much flexibility as possible, whilst still providing necessary support and community. Lectures are pre-recorded and available for you to watch in your own time, alongside any relevant reading, case studies and activities.

You will join regular online discussion groups. These are run using conferencing software, allowing you to interact in real-time with classmates and teaching faculty and will typically last one hour. For these sessions you will be expected to prepare short essays and/or presentations for discussion.

For the purposes of the dissertation you will be assigned an academic advisor, who you will meet with as and when necessary. You will also be expected to attend a week-long residential school in person at Oxford. A significant component of the course involves self-directed learning to build on taught materials.

This programme will offer you the opportunity to get actively involved in two neuroscience research projects, through your research placements. This will allow you to join first class research groups and gain first-hand experience of the day-to-day operation of neuroscience laboratory. Neuroscience research at the University of Manchester is rather diverse, spanning from the molecular processes of neuroinflammation, to neurodegenerative disease, the neuronal clocks responsible for the circadian rhythms, to the theoretical and experimental study of how networks of neurons implement brain functions such as sensory processing and motor control. You will also benefit from being exposed to the Neuroscience Research Seminars, in which internationally renowned experts present their recent findings.

This is a research focused master's course. We do not teach Neuroscience using a traditional lecture-based format; instead we use an interactive approach where you learn through seminars, workshops, small group tutorials and during your research placements.

Career opportunities

MSc graduates acquire a vast array of subject specific and transferable skills and gain extensive laboratory research experience. The University of Manchester has a strong record of placing students in PhD programmes at Manchester and other universities and several of our graduates have pursued research careers in industry.

Overview

Newly created modules in advanced human neuroanatomy, neuronal and glial physiology in health and disease will form the key pillars of the taught component of this program. This will be complimented by compulsory research focused, interactive experimental workshops exposing students to the extensive Neuroscience expertise in Southampton.

Workshops will focus on neuro-drug discovery, model organisms in neurological disease, dementia research including iPSC-models and neuropathological studies, neural networks, behavioural neurosciences, cell and molecular neurobiology and interdisciplinary neuroscience. Alongside students will undertake an individual extended research-based project, in one of fourteen research labs currently conducting cutting-edge neuroscience research. Research spans normal physiological function (such as circadian biology, aging processes and synaptic physiology) to neurodegenerative disease (such as dementia research, neuroinflammation, translational research). Additionally there will be a variety of optional modules on offer including a library-based dissertation, critiques on current research seminars, neuroimaging, critical thinking as well as other skills-based modules.

Students will also have the option to study allied subjects such as Psychology and Ethics in the context of Neuroscience. Teaching will be conducted in both traditional lecture-style groups as well as smaller interactive workshop based groups and practicals, led by both UoS research active neuroscientists, as well as external invited experts in the field. Throughout the programme, students will undertake independent reading both to supplement and consolidate the taught material and to broaden their knowledge and understanding of neuroscience. Through assessments, students will be taught to critically assess research papers, synthesize evidence based written scientific arguments and disseminate data through poster and oral presentations.
