Neuroimaging for Research
The use of neuroimaging techniques is rapidly increasing in many branches of research across a wide range of disciplines; they range from neuroscience to computer science, physics, psychology, linguistics, neurology, neuroradiology and many other areas; in many of these disciplines there is little primary teaching in how human brain structure, function or appearance are displayed on various imaging techniques; this programme looks at addressing these areas; this course is on line distance learning and part time.
Applicants require a UK 2.1 undergraduate degree, or its international equivalent, in neuroscience, physiology, pharmacology, informatics, psychology, physics or a related subject; students and professionals with a radiography qualification or a medical degree are also welcome to apply; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE 61 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade C or CAE grade B.
Year 1 core modules include: techniques and physics; applications in disease; common image processing techniques; practicalities of MR. Year 2 core modules include: anatomy; statistics; study design; common image processing techniques 2. Year 2 optional modules include: functional imaging; image analysis; translational imaging and clinical trials.
