MSc Cognitive Neuroscience
Cognitive Neuroscience is at the intersection of cognitive science, brain imaging, and clinical neuroscience. It is one of the most significant areas of contemporary science and it is beginning to transform our understanding of both normal and damaged brain function.
The importance of cognitive neuroscience has been recognised by the Welsh Assembly Government which in 2007 created the multi-centre Wales Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (WICN), drawing together the psychology departments at Swansea, Cardiff and Bangor Universities.
The course will equip students with the skills necessary for careers in cognitive neuroscience, enable them to acquire experience and expertise in experimental design, advanced statistical analysis and evaluation of research in different disciplines within cognitive neuroscience. It will also enhance their knowledge and understanding of the core areas of common concern in cognitive neuroscience, including attention, vision, memory and language, and the strategy of cross-disciplinary research in theory and application development.
It will also equip students with critical evaluative and analytical skills for addressing their own and others research within cognitive neuroscience, including assessing theory and methodology through a range of communication and audio-visual strategies.
Who should take this programme?
Those looking to go into a career in cognitive neuroscience or related field, including psychology, computing, neuroscience and medicine.
On completion of the course students should be able to demonstrate their employability across a range of disciplines within cognitive neuroscience.
