Overview

This exciting interdisciplinary Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster considers how the structure and function of the brain gives rise to mental processes while it interacts with its physical, social, and cultural environment. 

Cognitive and clinical neuroscience blends theoretical, experimental and applied aspects of psychology with neuroscience, and overlaps with other psychological disciplines including physiological, cognitive and clinical psychology, developmental science and psychopharmacology, as well as neuroanthropology.

It explores a wide range of research-based and clinically relevant methodologies including brain imaging, computational modelling and comparative cognition (considering evolutionary and developmental approaches).
