Summary

This 12-month course will give you in-depth training in core aspects of contemporary neuroscience, from sensation and sensory processing, to understanding complex brain functions and artificial intelligence. You'll be prepared for an exciting career in research, healthcare, industry, or further study to PhD level.

Throughout your course, our neuroscientists will introduce you to the core problems in computational neuroscience, adaptive behaviour, neuroethology, evolutionary biology, connectionism and robotics. We’ll teach you the core techniques in experimental cognitive psychology, including computational modelling, biomimetic robots and cutting-edge neuroimaging, and give you opportunities to apply these techniques.

Over three months you'll work on your research project in Cognitive Neuroscience with one of our world-leading experts in the Department of Psychology. Your research topic could range from theoretical to basic neuroscience. You may have the opportunity to collect and analyse real-life cognitive brain science data, using state-of-the-art equipment, before presenting your findings at our summer student-led conference. This project gives you the opportunity to put your new techniques in experimental neuroscience into practice, while exploring ideas at the cutting-edge of cognitive neuroscience. It's common for MSc research projects to form the basis of publications in peer-reviewed journals.
