Gain both theoretical and practitioner’s knowledge of cognitive neuroscience. Cognitive neuroscience combines techniques and skills including psychometric testing, electroencephalogram (EEG) eye tracking and imaging techniques – for application to neuropathological and healthy groups in clinical, academic or biomedical settings. Neuropathological groups may include people with head injuries, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. This course is ideal if you:
-Are a graduate with an applied or pure science degree including psychology, biosciences and nursing, and want to pursue a research, clinical or biomedical career in neuroscience.
-Work in a related area and wish to formalise and develop your skills, knowledge and expertise as part of continuing professional development.
-Want to open alternative career pathways.
-Are an EU or international student with the appropriate background and qualifications.

The course gives you the knowledge and skills to evaluate cognitive and brain function and dysfunction in healthy and neuropathological groups. You learn to understand the important ethical issues involved in neuroscientific research targeted at neuropathological and healthy groups, such as drug development for commercial gain.

You have an opportunity to go on a six months work placement in a clinical setting under supervision of professional neuropsychologist consultants.

We also build your research skills enabling you to work as an independent researcher in this area.You have the opportunity to attend workshops run by experts from relevant professions and fields of work. Examples include private clinical consultants, NHS neuropsychologist, teaching staff from the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology course at the University of Sheffield and alumi from our course working in academia and the private sector.

Our specialist learning resources include psychometric measures for assessing cognitive function and 3D model brains for understanding neuroanatomy. You learn to use specialist equipment including:
-EEG
-Transcranial magnetic stimulation
-Structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
-Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
-Visuo-psychophysics equipment.

Some lectures are taught by guest tutors including clinical psychologists and neuroimaging experts. You are automatically affiliated with our Brain, Behaviour and Cognition Research Group, which:
-Delivers targeted neuroscience workshops.
-Organises subject specific presentations.
-Has regular research meetings.
-Has strong collaborative links with other institutions.
