The Master’s Degree in Clinical and Experimental Sciences of the Nervous System is a blended master’s degree in the field of the neurosciences with three specialities:
-Research into Neurotoxicology and Neuropsychopharmacology (research track). This speciality aims to train future specialists to research into evaluating and characterising the effects of neuroactive substances(effects of neurotoxins from environmental pollutants on living organisms, effects of medicines and abusive drugs on behaviour). The objective is to provide students with multidisciplinary training and the basic and methodological knowledge that enable them to work as researchers in the field of neurotoxicology and psychopharmacology.
-Invasive Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy (professional track). The general aim of this speciality is to learn to examine and treat patients who suffer from problems of neuromuscular pain. Other aims are to use muscle palpation to identify tense bands of muscle and the most common locations for myofascial trigger points (MTP) and to attribute a patient’s pain to the presence of MTP in the corresponding muscles thanks to a knowledge of their pain patterns and the most important semiological characteristics. One of the primary objectives is to correctly apply the main techniques for the conservative and invasive (dry puncture) treatment of MTPs: that is to say, identifying and avoiding the contraindications, risks and complications generated by the various puncture techniques.
-Neurorehabilitation (professional track). The translational objectives of this speciality are to describe the etiopathological reasons for neurological, sensory and cognitive disorders based on experimental data applied to therapeutic situations. This should enable these disorders to be treated using appropriate and well-founded rehabilitation techniques. One of the main objectives is to use such cutting-edge technologies as robotics.

Student Profile

This master’s degree is designed for two types of students: on the one hand, recent graduates who have scientific concerns and who wish to work in the field of knowledge in general and, specifically, on the central and peripheral nervous system; and, on the other, the online component of the research track is designed specifically for professionals who are already working but who would like to do a doctorate on the nervous systems to increase their professional potential.

The aim of the professional specialities is to train professionals to examine and treat patients who suffer from neuromuscular pain and give them extensive knowledge of the central and peripheral nervous system in pathological situations so that they can suggest possible therapies.

These specialities are designed for health professionals who want to acquire new knowledge and abilities to improve their daily practice on issues of the central or peripheral nervous system and who also want to have sufficient scientific training to be able to opt for a doctoral degree related to their profession so that they can lead a clinical research group.

Career Opportunities

Graduates in the Inter-university Master's Degree in Nervous System Sciences: Neurotoxicology, Neuropsychopharmacology, Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Neurorehabilitation can work in:
-Biomedical research: researcher in public or private universities, involved in neuroscience and neurorehabilitation.
-Health care: physiotherapist in public or private institutions specializing in myofascial pain syndrome, rehabilitation services or orthopedic departments.
-Therapist specialised in motor, sensory and/or cognitive neurorehabilitation: rehabilitation centres for nerve damage.

On this course you study:
-Development through the lifespan – from infancy, childhood and adolescence into adulthood and old age.
-Stability and change in our physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.
-Similarities and differences in the development of individuals and how factors such as biology and environment shape our development.

This course is accredited as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership. This is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist.

The course is ideal if you are a:
-Psychology graduate seeking to advance your knowledge of developmental psychology.
-Graduate from a non-psychology background wanting to apply developmental psychology in the workplace.
-Graduate considering professional training in a developmental field, such as educational psychology or in areas of psychology requiring Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership.
-Graduate considering a research career.

During your studies you:
-Gain insight into how and why developmental changes take place, for example, in memory, problem-solving ability and emotional understanding.
-Explore why children differ in their development, for example, in attributes such as self-esteem and motivation.
-Gain a thorough grounding in traditional and contemporary developmental theories.
-Gain comprehensive knowledge and experience of developmental psychology research methods, enabling you to carry out good quality research.
-Apply your knowledge of lifespan development in various practical settings including education and healthcare.

You improve key skills such as:
-Critical thinking.
-Group working.
-Report writing.
-Data analysis.
-IT ability.

We also offer you the opportunity to gain experience of teaching students on our undergraduate programmes.

To make sure you graduate with the degree you want, you also choose an option module from one of the following: healthy and clinical ageing; clinical neuropsychopharmacology; theory and practice in counselling and therapy.

Assessment: coursework essays; research protocols; research reports; journal article reviews; sample lectures; presentations; exams; individual research project.

Other admission requirements

Typically you need qualifications equivalent to the above, and if English is not your first language you must have an IELTS score of 6.5 overall with a minimum 6.0 in writing and a minimum of 5.5 in all other skills. For equivalencies see our English language entry requirements web page.
