Course content

Disorders of the nervous system are major causes of disability globally. Neurological Science offers a range of one year research projects designed for medical students interested in working for an intercalated MPhil. The areas of study available include both applied and basic aspects of neurological infections, epilepsy, pain, magnetic resonance imaging, and health services research.
