Course content

Work alongside world leading researchers. Get hands on with our specialist facilities and gain the skills to pursue a research career in cognitive neuroscience, clinical psychology and other clinical settings.

You can use our dedicated, sound attenuated research laboratories, equipped with networked computers, as well as an observation laboratory, including a two-way mirror; an electroencephalography (EEG) laboratory; an eye-tracking laboratory; a psycholinguistics laboratory; a psychometrics laboratory and a psychoneuroimmunology laboratory.
Our psychology research has been classified as “world-leading” and “internationally excellent” in the Government’s 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
On our course you’ll learn how to interpret and analyse structural and functional neuroimaging (MRI and fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and eye-tracking data, while gaining a grounding in neuropsychological assessment for clinical and research purposes.
Lectures, seminars and practical workshops will introduce you to the current theoretical issues around clinical and cognitive neuroscience. We’ll explore brain neuro-anatomy and connectivity and how multiple converging approaches can strengthen the research process.
Your dissertation allows you to independently research an area you’re passionate about. Supported by lecturers who are prominent researchers and longstanding members of Cambridge’s world-renowned psychological research community.
