Degree Overview

On this course, as well as gaining a thorough understanding of the broad range of topics relevant to modern day psychology, you’ll specialise in neuropsychology, and will develop an in-depth understanding of how the brain and the nervous system influence human thought, emotion, language and behaviour. During the course you’ll become acquainted with advanced techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and event-related potentials (ERPs) for observing brain activity and learn how developments in research technology have supported our developing understanding of the brain – its structures and functions. You’ll learn about biological factors across the lifespan, neural encoding, learning and representation, as social beings how other people are represented in the brain but also how we perceive ourselves. You may also learn about what happens when the brain is damaged or impaired, for example in head injury, or stroke, not only how these conditions affect patients but also how patients can be rehabilitated.
