Course description

Neuroscience is the study of the brain and nervous system and how they work to generate behaviour, perception, movement, thought, memory and other key functions. These studies call on a wide range of knowledge and experimental techniques. New molecular approaches are advancing our knowledge of membrane receptor structure and giving remarkable progress towards understanding neural development. There have also been major advances in our understanding of the biology of higher brain function and the pathogenesis of a variety of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.

In the final year of this four year course a major research project is undertaken, culminating in the award of an undergraduate masters qualification. Ours is one of the few undergraduate masters in neuroscience in the UK.

This programme has been accredited by the Society of Biology. Accreditation is awarded to programmes that demonstrate the highest standards in the biosciences and provide graduates with the skills for academic and industry careers.
