First intake joins Cognitive Neuroscience & Neuroimaging MScThursday 22 October 2015
A new Cognitive Neuroscience & Neuroimaging MSc programme has launched in the Psychology Department.
Teaching is underway, with the first intake of students learning about the state-of-the-art discipline that explores the link between brain and mind.
The programme is organised around a core that integrates a course in cognitive neuroscience along with cutting-edge developments in neuroimaging, including functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Electroencephalography.
Psychology graduate Rebecca Dwyer said: “Having studied my undergraduate degree at Hope, it seemed like the logical choice to complete my Masters at the University.
“I’d looked into studying at other universities that offer the course, but chose Hope as I know the tutors, the style of assessments and enjoyed studying here.”
Having completed her undergraduate degree in Canada, Charlotte Page chose to continue her postgraduate studies in England.
She said: "I am interested in studying neurodegenerative disorders, in particular Alzheimer's disease. The cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging MSc programme at Liverpool Hope seemed like the obvious next step for me.
"The course appealed to me particularly because of its heavy focus on neuroimaging techniques and knowledge directly applicable to working in the neuroscience industry, and will hopefully prepare me for further studies at the Phd level after completion of the MSc."
Luke Meneilly, who also achieved his BSc at Hope, added: “The course appealed to me as I’d like to work with people who have suffered brain injuries as a result of contact sports such as martial arts.
“I’ve practiced martial arts myself for years and have a personal interest in this area of neuroscience.”
