Course detail

- Description -

The Neuroimaging course aims to train the neuroimaging researchers of tomorrow by focusing on teaching you the scientific and methodological aspects of neuroimaging techniques in parallel to their application to psychiatry, neurology, psychology, clinical psychology, neuroscience, and beyond.

In addition to theoretical approaches, our course has a strong applied element, which will allow you to gain practical experience of scanning techniques, with a focus on the skills needed to run a scanning session and to analyse and interpret the data produced. It also includes visits to other centres providing PET, MEG and NIRS among other imaging techniques

- Course purpose -

Through this programme, the Department of Neuroimaging aims to apply its collective expertise to the development of the next generation of Neuroimaging specialists through the teaching of both the scientific and methodological aspects of neuroimaging techniques and applications. The programme is aimed at an inclusive audience, but would be of particular interest to mathematicians, engineers, physicists, psychologists, radiographers, and medical professionals.

- Course format and assessment -

The first three modules, "Introduction to Neuroimaging", "Neuroimaging Acquisition and Analysis" and "Applications of Neuroimaging", are each assessed by a written examination and a coursework essay.

The fourth module, "Practical Neuroimaging", is assessed by an examination designed to test the candidate's skill in abstract writing and by an oral presentation associated to a mini Neuroimaging project and to its report.

In the first four modules, students' practical skills are also evaluated through computer-lab assessments.

The fifth module "Neuroimaging Research Project" is assessed by a research report, a lab book and a poster presentation.

Career prospects

Those who successfully complete the programme will have a solid understanding of the techniques and applications of Neuroimaging and will be well equipped to work in Neuroimaging or related professions. Students may also wish to use the programme as preparation for PhD study in either Neuroimaging or a related research area.
