Systems Neuroscience

This programme provides intensive training in a range of neuroscience research areas and techniques. There is particular emphasis on approaches that include study of the intact nervous system in animal models, for example behavioural testing, in vivo pharmacology, in vivo electrophysiology and brain imaging. Many of these experimental approaches generate large and complex datasets and can be enhanced by combination with theoretical modelling; the programme therefore also provides training in the fundamentals of computational neuroscience. In addition to basic principles, translational links to nervous system diseases are highlighted throughout.

Entry requirements

An upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or international equivalent).

Course modules

Core units: principles of neuroscience; concepts and techniques for In Vivo research; advanced research skills; computational neuroscience and data modelling. Research project: one extended research project lasting eight months.
