The recent advancement in technology that allows us to measure and probe brain function and mechanism means there is a mass of new data to inform our understanding of the brain. Explaining this data and understanding it requires a theoretical framework to work with. Cognitive neuroscience provides this framework and a powerful explanatory basis to understand the mind and its causal relation to the brain. This MSc by Research course will give you the practical skills required to conduct cognitive neuroscience research and the expertise in neuroimaging and brain stimulation techniques.
Why study Cognitive Neuroscience MSc by Research at Middlesex University?
This programme will be tailored to your specific needs and requirements through workshops, tutorials and seminars resulting in a thesis in cognitive neuroscience. You will explore the basic neuroscientific principles, methodological approaches and the theoretical framework of cognitive neuroscience. You will further develop and learn new skills of how to practically conduct cognitive neuroscience research.
Our academics are internationally recognised researchers in the field and have expertise in a variety of behavioural, neuroimaging and transcranial neuro-stimulation techniques. You will be encouraged to develop advanced skills in the use of one or more of these techniques for the purposes of designing and conducting a cognitive neuroscience study.
You will have the opportunity to become part of a national and international collaborative research network and pursue a specific research project of your own interest in collaboration with experts in the field.
- You will explore recent advances and developments in cognitive neuroscience through research
- You will gain experience in brain stimulation and/or neuroimaging techniques and learn how to use them to conduct your own research study
- You will have access to specialised and state-of-the-art software and research equipment (TMS,TES, EEG, eye-tracking) to analyse and interpret brain data
- You will learn through in-depth tutorials and workshops from researchers active in the field of cognitive neuroscience.
