Masters Degrees in Affective Neuroscience

We have 41 Masters Degrees in Affective Neuroscience

Masters degrees in Affective Neuroscience involve advanced study of the neural mechanisms that underlie human emotional behaviours, such as personality and mood. Related subjects include Translational Neuroscience and Applied Neuropsychology. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Medicine or Psychology.

Why study a Masters in Affective Neuroscience?

## Masters in Affective Neuroscience typically investigate the correlation between brain activity and factors such as attention, motivation and cognition. For example, you might explore why some people struggle to concentrate when experiencing high levels of stress or anxiety, while others thrive under pressure. Or, you might examine why certain events (such as the passing of a loved one) have biological effects like illness due to high levels of emotional response. You might even explore how changes in biological function affect emotional responses, particularly with illnesses such as Alzheimer’s or disabilities such as autism. Expertise in this field is applicable to many professional practices. These could include clinical or healthcare roles, social care and rehabilitation, pharmacology, or even the design and development of artificial intelligence.
