Masters Programmes at the ICN

The MSc and MRes programmes in Cognitive Neuroscience are research-led, state-of-the-art degree programmes on mental processes in the human brain.

Our Masters programmes bring together some of the world's leading researchers in cognitive neuroscience and cognitive neuropsychology. As a student on either of the programmes, you will learn about the relationship between the mind and the brain in patients and healthy individuals. You may receive case demonstrations of brain-damaged patients, insights into transcranial magnetic and direct current stimulation, and experience with functional neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, EEG, and MEG).
