Masters degrees in Neuroscience involve advanced study of human nerve cells and the nervous system, exploring their anatomy, physiology, and chemical and functional behaviour
Related postgraduate specialisms include Cognitive Neuroscience and Clinical Neuroscience. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Biology or Medicine.
Topics available to study within this field are very broad, with many courses taking an interdisciplinary approach that combines methodologies from subjects like Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Medicine.
Training usually includes practical investigations such as experiment design, lab work and imaging techniques. The purpose of these tasks is to help you understand the role of neurons in neural circuits, as well as the molecular biology and chemical composition of the different cells which make up the nervous system.
You may wish to specialise in a particular area of Neuroscience for your future career, such as the evolution of the nervous system, its functional and structural processes, or its computational and psychosocial significance.
Job possibilities include roles in clinical medicine and the treatment of neural diseases, the design and implementation of new investigative technology, research roles and social care.
