Course content

The Masters Degree in Cognitive Neuroscience is led by a team of cognitive neuroscientists who are active in neuroimaging, brain stimulation, and electroencephalography research. The aim of the course is to provide a bridge between undergraduate study and PhD research in cognitive neuroscience, experimental psychology, and imaging methods.

The course has been developed to train students in cognitive neuroscience research, introducing the principles of neuroimaging and gaining hands-on experience in structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI and fMRI), eletroencephalography (EEG), and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Students will learn how to design, analyse, and evaluate neuroimaging experiments, and these are contributing to our understanding of the brain mechanisms underpinning cognition and behaviour.
