Research project

An important part of the MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience is the research project. This project constitutes one-third of the total number of course credits (60 out of 180 total credits). Students are expected to conduct an empirical piece of research in the area of cognitive neuroscience, usually on a topic that is of particular interest to them. The precise nature of the project will vary widely. Students will be given a description of the research interests of lecturers who are willing to supervise projects and an outline of possible projects. Students are also encouraged to generate their own ideas. The project will be assessed with a 10,000-12,000 word written dissertation.
