MSc Neuroimaging for Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience

Course Description

The MSc in Neuroimaging for Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience offers an in-depth grounding in cutting-edge cognitive neuroscience techniques (MRI, fMRI, DTI, PET, EEG, MEG, TMS, tDCS) and their application to research in clinical and cognitive neuroscience. The course is aimed at graduates with scientific training who are interested in a career where brain imaging forms a major focus.

Students on our course learn about the theory behind cognitive, social, behavioural, and clinical neuroscience through lectures and seminars led by experts in the field. Students also learn practical data analysis skills and functional neuroanatomy, taught through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab sessions using the latest neuroimaging software.

The research project allows our students to join an ongoing research programme taking place across the University and, ultimately, to make an original contribution to the field.

Research Project

Graduates of the MSc in Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience are ideally placed to make major contributions to research in cognitive neuroscience, to the application of imaging methods to clinical research, or to the development of neuroimaging technologies and analysis methods.

***Our MSc can form the first year of Research Council-funded 1+3 postgraduate PhD studentships (e.g., from the ESRC Northwest Doctoral Training Centre).

***The course is also suited to intercalating medical students with an interest in the application of brain imaging to research and practice in neurology or psychiatry.
