This programme will offer you the opportunity to get actively involved in two neuroscience research projects, through your research placements. This will allow you to join first class research groups and gain first-hand experience of the day-to-day operation of neuroscience laboratory. Neuroscience research at the University of Manchester is rather diverse, spanning from the molecular processes of neuroinflammation, to neurodegenerative disease, the neuronal clocks responsible for the circadian rhythms, to the theoretical and experimental study of how networks of neurons implement brain functions such as sensory processing and motor control. You will also benefit from being exposed to the Neuroscience Research Seminars, in which internationally renowned experts present their recent findings.
This is a research focused Masters course. We do not teach Neuroscience using a traditional lecture-based format; instead we use an interactive approach where you learn through seminars, workshops, small group tutorials and during your research placements.
