|Department||School of Biomedical Sciences|
The MSc by Research in Integrative Neuroscience is a one-year, full-time research programme covering all levels of modern neuroscience, which makes it an ideal programme to prepare you for a PhD.
We include molecular, cellular, systems, regenerative, cognitive, clinical and computational neuroscience. We also allow you to choose your specialty right from the start, allowing you to shape your learning around your interests and career goals.
You start with a taught component in the first 12 weeks, and attend ‘themed weeks’ which run in parallel with elective from which you choose your optional courses. The Elective optional courses include:
- Developmental Neurobiology
- Neural Circuits
- Neurodegeneration and Regeneration
The elective courses run during the first 12 weeks on two half days per week. These will give you a deeper insight into the concepts and methodology of a specific field of interest.
For your research you can choose available projects or contact principal investigators from more than 120 groups in the Edinburgh Neuroscience community to develop your own project, which can range from psychology to nanoscience.
Examples of completed projects are:
- Axon Initial Segment plasticity in a mouse model of Fragile X Syndrome (Peter Kind)
- Cognitive and motor functions in neurodegenerative diseases (Thomas Bak)
- Interactions of amyloid beta and tau in causing cognitive decline in a novel Alzheimer’s disease model (Tara Spires-Jones)
- Role of primary cilia in the development of stem cells during development of the cerebral cortex (Thomas Theil)
