About the course

Course description

The MSc Cognitive Neuroscience and Human Neuroimaging programme provides you with training in neuroanatomy, neuroimaging, neurophysiological data collection, and analysis techniques, allowing you to investigate and understand human behaviour, ready to make discoveries at the frontier of modern cognitive neuroscience. Throughout your course, you’ll use pre-existing data sets and have the opportunity to collect your own neuroimaging and neurophysiological data, giving you the chance to put your new technical knowledge of cognitive brain science into practice and draw conclusions from healthy and unhealthy brains.

If you have a passion for understanding the brain and behaviour, whether your background stems from biology, engineering, physics, mathematics, psychology or

"My BSc in Psychology here at the University of Sheffield gave me the perfect foundation for the MSc(Res) in Cognitive Neuroscience and Human Neuroimaging. This course comprises both medicine and psychology modules which allowed me to learn about the brain from both a medical and psychological stand point; in addition to learning about the physics behind the neuroimaging techniques themselves.

"What I love most about this course is that it goes above and beyond the essential hands on experiences to prime you for a PhD or a career in research, presenting you with a range of unique opportunities; from giving you access to dissection labs using a real human brain, to a visit to a real life fMRI scanner in the local Hallamshire Hospital, located mere minutes away from the heart of the university. Furthermore, as this course is so small, it encourages the group to really share their ideas, and moulds the teaching to a more personal level.

"On completion of this masters, I hope to continue my education to study a PhD in neuroscience to further hone my research skills, and prep me for a career in the research industry. I would ideally like to further close the gap between the domains of Psychology and Medicine; focusing on the fundamental neurological causes of anxiety and depression, and working to improve available therapies that are both effective and economical."
