Gain a strong foundation in understanding the mechanisms and treatments of neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases.
This programme is designed for students from a range of backgrounds, who are interested in pursuing a career in neuroscience. You will develop a detailed understanding of modern theory and concepts relating to brain research and neuroscience and the application of these principles in the treatment of brain disorders. This course places emphasis on the clinical relevance of recent developments in neuroscience.
The development of your research methods skills is an integral part of the course. You will further your understanding of applied neuroscience with a research project which will develop your data handling and analysis skills, and use of applied theory and statistics.
You’ll be introduced to a diverse range of topics and will have the chance to focus on areas that interest you. Examples of topics that you might cover include the clinical relevance of recent developments in neuroscience, brain imaging techniques and their applications in neurology and psychiatry, neurobiological mechanisms of human brain disorders, effects of nutrition and addiction on brain function, and research methods. You will also discuss ethical issues in clinical neuroscience and develop your ability to critically evaluate current developments in clinical brain research, which are relevant to healthcare.
You’ll work with academics who are currently investigating a range of topical issues such as the addictive nature of new psychoactive substances, the effects of stress on the brain regulatory systems and the mechanisms of brain cell death and repair using neural stem cells. You’ll also be welcome to attend additional research seminars and discussions on topical developments in neuroscience and health sciences, led by experts.
MSc Clinical Neuroscience is recognised by the Federation of Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and included in the Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS), which is the highest accolade in European neuroscience teaching.
This programme can accommodate students from a range of backgrounds including new graduates from life sciences or psychology as well as health professionals who hold non-traditional qualifications. The programme options of PG Diploma or PG Certificate can be useful to health professionals who wish to refresh update theory knowledge without the commitment of conducting a research project (MSc). It is also suitable for applicants from the NHS, for example, neuro-nurses or therapists.
