Summary

Providing an immersive approach to human neuroscience, this course provides the knowledge, experience and the key practical neuroimaging/neurostimulation skills to prepare you for a career in neuroscience research. Built around our new Brain Research Imaging Centre (BRIC) you will gain a first-hand technical experience of a range of state-of-the-art neuroscience techniques, including fMRI, EEG, and TMS. These will familiarise you with all aspects of the neuroscientific process, from the physics of the techniques to experiment design and operational technique, from data analysis and manipulation to the dissemination of original findings.

Programme overview FT study: Core modules deliver advanced instruction on key aspects of human neuroscience. In-depth knowledge of neuroanatomy, pharmacology, and physiology provide the context for technical instruction on the physics and applications of human neuroimaging techniques and data handling. These form the basis for skills-based training in the practical aspects human neuroscience, with hands-on advanced practice across a range of cutting-edge neuroimaging methods. Finally, with supervision of world-class neuroimaging researchers you will bring your new knowledge and skills to bear on a research question of your own choosing in the neuroscience research project.

Special features • Benefit from integration with our new BRIC, offering state-of-the-art facilities for fMRI, EEG, and other neuroscience techniques. • Our hands-on approach to learning embeds practical activities throughout the programme, with neuroimaging advanced practice providing hands-on experience in the operation of specialized equipment. • Work with world-leading neuroimaging researchers and engage in an original neuroscience research topic of your own choosing.

Career opportunities This programme provides in-depth knowledge and practical training in human neuroimaging designed to put you on a path to a neuroscience career. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, the direct experience gained using our new state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility will give you some of the most sought-after skills in the field. Advanced instruction in neuroimaging data manipulation, signal processing and interpretation then build on these operation skills. These provide a thorough understanding of the entire neuroscientific research cycle from design to dissemination that will give you a competitive advantage for further study.
