MSc / MRes Advanced Neuroimaging

University College London
London, England, UK and Distance Learning
Courses in UKCourses in England1 year FT; 2 years PT; up to 5 years flexible

Course description
This MSc is specifically aimed at those pursuing a professional career in neuroimaging, either in clinical practice or in neuroscience research. This multidisciplinary programme provides training in both the basic scientific and technological principles of modern neuroimaging methods, and in their application to understand neurological function and neurological disorders. Study by distance learning is also available.

Students will develop a foundational knowledge of neuroanatomy, understand the principles and main technical aspects of neuroimaging instrumentation and data acquisition, basic image processing and image analysis techniques, and gain a good working knowledge of modern methods for scientific and clinical investigation of the human nervous system using neuroimaging.

Programme starts
September 2018

Why study this degree at UCL?
The focus of this degree is neuroimaging of neurological disease. Together with our associated hospital, the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the UCL Institute of Neurology promotes research that is of direct clinical relevance to improved patient care and treatment.

With its concentration of clinical and applied scientific activity the institute is a unique national resource for postgraduate training in neurology, its associated disciplines and the basic neurosciences. During their time at Queen Square students will have the opportunity to contribute to world-leading research and have access to cutting-edge neuroimaging facilities.

Core modules
All of the Advanced Neuroimaging modules are considered core modules

– Physical Science module 1: Introductory Science and Methods
– Physical Science module 2: Imaging Modalities
– Physical Science module 3: Advanced Imaging
– Clinical module 1: Introduction to Neuroanatomy, Systems & Disease
– Clinical module 2: Pathology & Diagnostic Imaging I
