You will learn how to design, analyse, and evaluate neuroimaging experiments that contribute to our understanding of the brain mechanisms underpinning aspects of cognition and behaviour such as memory, attention, object recognition, neurodegeneration, and brain trauma.
You will get in-depth training in cognitive neuroscience research, introducing the principles of neuroimaging and gaining hands-on experience in structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI and fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
Our wide range of optional modules means that you can tailor your studies to your particular interests and goals for further study. We can also help you to secure work placements to provide valuable clinical experience.
Many of our academic staff are leaders in their specialist fields of research, including clinical and health psychology, brain injury, sleep, cognition, neuroscience and developmental psychology.
A Cognitive Neuroscience programme from Swansea University will provide you with a vital academic foundation for future study at doctoral level. On completion, you will be able to apply to any competitive PhD programme in cognitive neuroscience nationally and internationally.
The course opens up a range of career options within cognitive neuroscience and related fields including psychology, computing, neurosciences, medicine and computer science
