Our MSc in Neuroimaging for Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience will provide you with the theoretical and practical skills required to carry out high-quality cognitive brain imaging work in healthy individuals and in patient populations.

Our course is aimed at graduates with scientific training (eg in physics, computer science, mathematics, medicine, psychology, neuroscience, pharmacology and engineering) who are interested in a career where brain imaging forms a major focus or where the scientific and technological needs of brain imaging are addressed.

This field draws on diverse areas of scientific expertise and ultimately depends on effective communication between these areas.

Issues relating to the optimisation of fMRI and EEG data acquisition and analysis will be explored, with a particular focus on the cross-talk between the physics of the scanning environment, the psychology of the experimental design and the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of the human brain.

In addition, the course offers an in-depth grounding in cognitive, social, behavioural and clinical neuroscience theory and offers the opportunity to be directly involved in both EEG and fMRI research.

Graduating students will be ideally placed to make major contributions to research and technological development within the brain imaging area.

Apart from doing standard background reading and preparation for coursework and examinations, you will be required to work on lab-based skills outside formal teaching times. Dedicated facilities will be available for this.

Coursework and assessment

Assessment will vary between course units, but will comprise a mixture of examinations (including short answer and multiple-choice formats), coursework, lab reports and a final research report.

Career opportunities

Our MSc in Neuroimaging for Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience will prepare you for a career path in scientific and clinical research and academia, as it provides the ideal platform from which to proceed to doctoral work involving brain imaging.

The course also provides clear career paths in specialist software and hardware industries and in specialist sections of the pharmaceutical industry.
