    Presentación

    You will be provided with the necessary grounding in the biological sciences, neuropsychology, and fundamental psychology. You will study core modules from the neurosciences and psychology, alongside options from chosen applied disciplines at Year 3. The particular skills required for research methods and statistics are covered in depth in Research Methods modules. These skills leads to more specialised study and advanced research, including a double project module in Cognitive Neuroscience taken in your final year.

    Objetivos

    This exciting and rapidly evolving discipline describes the interdisciplinary approach to understanding the link between mind and brain, examining the nature of thought and its biological basis. It attempts to solve the mysteries of the mind by bringing together evidence from molecular and cellular neuroscience (including psychopharmacology), a wide range of brain imaging techniques, computational modelling, and cognitive neuropsychology (itself a product of experimental psychology and clinical neuropsychology). You will consider all aspects of cognitive functioning, from learning, memory and language through to concepts such as intelligence, creativity and consciousness.

    The course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to develop your career in a variety of roles, including clinical psychology, neuropsychology or experimental research, IT roles in industry, or academic research.
