Forensic and Neuropsychological Perspectives in Face Processing

This programme is designed to reflect the expertise of academic staff, and is expected to primarily recruit students who wish to pursue a research career in the field of face-processing. Through the study of contemporary issues in face-processing research, the course provides a fascinating programme of study if students are wishing to become researchers in this area and/or are seeking further professional development by gaining a unique and relevant qualification in an increasingly difficult job market. Students 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, students will get plenty of practical, hands-on experience. These skills will be fundamental for the research project, in which students will carry out an experimental investigation addressing a novel research question in the field. This project will be carried out under the expert supervision of 1 or 2 academics, and will often contribute to key investigations that are central to the laboratory's research agenda.

Entry requirements
