University of Plymouth

Providing an immersive approach to human neuroscience, this course provides the knowledge, experience and the key practical neuroimaging/neurostimulation skills to prepare you for a career in neuroscience research. Built around our new Brain Research Imaging Centre (BRIC) you will gain a first-hand technical experience of a range of state-of-the-art neuroscience techniques, including fMRI, EEG, and TMS. These will familiarise you with essential aspects of the neuroscientific process with experiment design and operational technique, data analysis and manipulation, through to dissemination of original findings. Elective modules allow you to tailor your experience to future careers, allowing specialisation in the physics of neuroimaging and current issues in cognitive and brain science. Special features• Benefit from integration with our new BRIC, offering state-of-the-art facilities for fMRI, EEG, and other neuroscience techniques.• Our hands-on approach to learning embeds practical activities throughout the programme, with neuroimaging advanced practice providing hands-on experience in the operation of specialized equipment.• Work with world-leading neuroimaging researchers and engage in an original neuroscience research topic of your own choosing.• Elective modules allow you to shape the specialist neuroscientist you want to be.Career opportunitiesThis programme provides the in-depth knowledge and practical training in human neuroimaging designed to put you on a path to a career in neuroscience. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, the direct experience gained using our new state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility will give you some of the most sought-after skills in the discipline. Advanced instruction in neuroimaging data manipulation, signal processing and interpretation then build on these operation skills. These provide a thorough understanding of the entire neuroscientific research cycle from design to dissemination that will give you a competitive advantage for further study.
