The Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience programme, offered by Goldsmiths, University of London, provides a thorough coverage of the historical, philosophical and scientific bases of modern neuroscience. The emphasis is on scientific knowledge relating to the specialisms of clinical and cognitive neuropsychology with theoretical and some practical coverage.
