Overview

The MSc in Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience from Keele University explores some of the most exciting challenges facing the scientific and clinical communities – how the brain and nervous system relate to human consciousness, decision making, attention, perception, memory, motor skills and more.

You will engage in research methods training, learning to design experiments, collect data using neuroscience methods, such as EEG (electroencephalogram), and analyse it using appropriate statistical methods. Familiarising you with contemporary issues in cognition and cognitive neuroscience, you'll be in a position to progress to further study, for example, Clinical Psychology training or a PhD, or pursue professional roles, such as a data analyst or technical consultant.

Career

The advanced research and practical skills you will be able to demonstrate as a graduate of this programme will stand you in good stead for a wide range of careers in research, academia (research or teaching), military or industry – in fact anywhere there is a need to understand and predict behaviour, thought or performance.

Cognitive psychologists and neuroscientists conduct research and work in areas as diverse as user interface design, human factors and ergonomics, artificial intelligence, computer-human interaction, linguistic analysis, speech synthesis and voice recognition, product testing, sales and neuromarketing, behavioural science, government departments, and biotechnology.
