Neuroscience

Our department is home to a world-renowned sensory neuroscience research group. Their projects provide the basis for teaching and research training on this MSc. The course covers molecular, cell and developmental biology of auditory and visual systems. Advanced imaging and behavioural analysis focus on information processing from sensory transduction to the central nervous system and behaviour. You'll also study animal models of sensory deficits and the development of therapeutic treatments for hearing loss and blindness. Throughout your degree, you'll be taught through lectures, practical sessions, lab placements, tutorials and seminars. In small group teaching classes you'll discuss, debate and present on scientific and ethical topics. The biggest part of the course will be your individual research project, working alongside professional scientists. Our teaching covers ethics, practical scientific skills and an overview of the current literature. You'll also develop useful career skills such as presentation, communication and time management.
