Research training modules are delivered through short hands-on research placements to develop skills and a longer independent research project that will be closely supervised by a relevant member of academic staff. Taught modules cover relevant aspects of cognitive and brain function, including brain imaging and cognition. The modules focus on providing in-depth training on methods and tools used in cognitive neuroscience research.
- Proposing Research in Psychology
- Current and Practical Research
- Introduction to Data Science
- Introduction to neuroscientific methods
- Application of Brain imaging
Optional modules include:
- Fundamental in Brain Imaging
- Application of Electrophysiology
- Introduction to Matlab
- Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
- Foundation to Data Science
Please note: The modules listed on the website for this programme are regularly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and informed by the latest research and teaching methods. Unless indicated otherwise, the modules listed for this programme are for students starting in 2021. On rare occasions, we may need to make unexpected changes to compulsory modules after that date; in this event we will contact offer holders as soon as possible to inform or consult them as appropriate.
Students also undertake a supervised research project, leading to a 6,000-word research dissertation. See some of the recent projects (PDF 331KB) undertaken by students on the course.
