Forensic and Neuropsychological Perspectives in Face Processing

Bournemouth University has one of the largest face-processing laboratories in the UK, and our academic staff have expertise in neuropsychological disorders of face-processing and forensic applications of face-processing research. This expertise is central to the delivery of the course, where you will learn about the detection, management and potential remediation of face-processing disorders, including those with acquired, progressive, developmental or neuropsychiatric origins. Through the study of contemporary issues in face-processing research, the fascinating programme of study is especially relevant if you hope to become a researcher in this area and/or are seeking further professional development by gaining a unique and relevant qualification in an increasingly difficult job market. You will also gain key technological skills that are required for face-processing research. There will be training in the manipulation of facial stimuli, instruction in programming, and consideration of methodological issues and experimental design. Using our state-of-the-art research equipment, including eye-tracking, tDCS, EEG and when possible MRI, you will get plenty of practical, hands-on experience. These skills will be fundamental for the research project, in which you will carry out an experimental investigation addressing a novel research question in the field.
