Master Cognitive Neuroscience - Máster en Neurociencia Congnitiva
Research Methods in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience is at the intersection of cognitive science, brain imaging, and clinical neuroscience. It is one of the most significant areas of contemporary science and it is beginning to transform our understanding of both normal and damaged brain function. The programme is taught by highly-respected experts in the field and will equip students with the skills necessary for research careers across a range of scientific areas.
A minimum of a 2.2 degree in psychology or a related discipline is required.
We consider a wide range of international qualifications. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Where English is not the applicant’s first language, the University requires an IELTS test is taken to meet minimum entry requirements.
The importance of cognitive neuroscience has been recognised by the Welsh Government which created the multi-centre Wales Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, drawing together the psychology departments at Swansea, Cardiff and Bangor Universities. A core aspect of the provision for MSc Research Methods in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience will also be collaboration with the College of Medicine at Swansea University.
The Master´s course will equip students with the skills necessary for research careers across a range of scientific areas. In particular, the programme will enable students to acquire experience and expertise in experimental design, advanced statistical analysis and evaluation of research in different disciplines within psychology and cognitive neuroscience, including neuroimaging, cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and brain stimulation techniques.
The programme will offer students the opportunity to design and conduct research projects using a number of state-of-the-art techniques, including functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging; Electroencephalography; Eye Tracking; Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation; and Neuropsychological patient studies. Students will also have access to the one of the UK’s few Sleep Laboratories. Staff contributing to the programme have a wide range of complementary research experience within psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
