Southampton’s one-year postgraduate MSc Neuroscience gives students the opportunity to specialise in the study of neuroscience, while working alongside some of the most eminent researchers at the forefront of their field.
The programme offers participants the chance to be embedded in one of the University’s cutting-edge Neuroscience research groups. It is ideal for students wishing to pursue further neuroscience PhD study or who want a career in pharmacology, neuroscience drug development, and pharmaceutical companies and focused on neuroscience.
Newly created modules in advanced human neuroanatomy, neuronal and glial physiology in health and disease will form the key pillars of the taught component of this program. This will be complimented by compulsory research focused, interactive experimental workshops exposing students to the extensive Neuroscience expertise in Southampton.
Workshops will focus on neuro-drug discovery, model organisms in neurological disease, dementia research including iPSC-models and neuropathological studies, neural networks, behavioural neurosciences, cell and molecular neurobiology and interdisciplinary neuroscience. Alongside these modules students will undertake an individual extended research-based project in one of fourteen research labs currently conducting cutting-edge neuroscience research. Research spans from normal physiological function (such as circadian biology, aging processes and synaptic physiology) to neurodegenerative disease (such as dementia research, neuroinflammation, translational research). Additionally there will be a variety of optional modules on offer including a library-based dissertation, critiques on current research seminars, neuroimaging, and critical thinking, as well as other skills-based modules.
