The aim of this programme is to help you gain interdisciplinary knowledge “from molecules to mind” and develop research skills in cognitive brain imaging, fundamental neuroscience and brain disorders. Over the last two decades there has been an explosion of interest in brain science across academia, industry and the media. The integration of cognitive brain imaging with neuroscience plays a central part in discovering how the brain functions in health and disease in the 21st century, as illustrated by the Human Brain Project in Europe and The Brain Initiative in the USA. WHY THIS PROGRAMME
- Study in an institute striving to understand the brain at multiple levels of function, from cells to cognition using approaches ranging from molecular, cellular and systems level investigations to brain imaging.
- Top 10 in the UK for Psychology (Complete University Guide 2021).
- Experience lectures by staff who are international research leaders and publish cutting edge research at the forefront of brain sciences.
- Attend seminars on a wide range of topics given by eminent external speakers visiting the Institute from around the world as part of our Current Research Topics course.
