University of Southampton
MSc Neuroscience students advance their knowledge of brain function and dysfunction gaining a variety of cutting edge experimental neuroscience techniques including use of model organisms, electrophysiology, stem cell technology, human brain tissue and computational neuroscience. Undertaking an in-depth project, students develop rigorous research and analytical skills while engaging with current scientific discussion and debate. There is a strong taught component with modules in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, glial biology, neuropharmacology, behavioural, translational and interdisciplinary neurosciences, neurodegenerative disease and drug discovery. It is ideal for those students looking to focus on neurosciences with a view to seeking careers in academic research, the pharmaceutical industry, and allied areas within business and science communication.
MSc: Undergraduate (first- or upper second-class) or postgraduate degree in biological sciences or closely related discipline.
Compulsory modules: Structure and function of the nervous system; synaptic function in health and disease; glial development and biology; advanced research project; current research; advanced neuroscience. Optional modules: Skills in molecular bioscience; biological optical imaging; neuropharmacology of CNS disorders; neurodegenerative disease; cellular and molecular neuroscience; systems neuroscience; molecular pharmacology.
Students will be assessed by a combination of continuous assessment and written examinations at the end of each semester to test your knowledge and understanding of the lecture and tutorial material. Continuous assessment is based on performance in tutorials, practicals and projects including dissertations and presentations.
