This exciting interdisciplinary degree course considers how the structure and function of the brain gives rise to mental processes while it interacts with its physical, social, and cultural environment. Cognitive and clinical neuroscience blends theoretical, experimental and applied aspects of psychology with neuroscience, and overlaps with other psychological disciplines including physiological, cognitive and clinical psychology, developmental science and psychopharmacology, as well as neuroanthropology.
This unique course places a particular focus on brain-behaviour relationships, by bringing together evidence from molecular and cellular neuroscience, brain injury studies and neurological illness, and also looks at developmental and cognitive aspects. It explores a wide range of research-based and clinically relevant methodologies including brain imaging, computational modelling and comparative cognition (considering evolutionary and developmental approaches).
During your degree, you will consider all aspects of cognitive functioning, from learning, memory and language through to concepts such as intelligence, decision-making, creativity and consciousness. The course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to develop a career across a vast range of highly sought after employment areas, including academic research, clinical psychology, experimental research, IT and neuropsychology. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
In the first year (Level 4) of the degree, you will gain core skills in psychology, as identiﬁed by the British Psychological Association for chartered membership. In the second and third years of the degree (Levels 5 and 6), you will enrol on core and option modules from a range of cognitive and clinical disciplines.
