The Neuroscience (Hons) programme at Aston University differs from many undergraduate neuroscience courses in the UK, with a key focus on acquiring practical skills - an advantage that will set you apart from the graduate crowd.
You’ll work closely with active neuroscience researchers working on ground-breaking projects and study a range of modules designed to give you a comprehensive introduction to the fascinating world of brain function.
During the course you will get the opportunity to:
- Learn pharmacology through tissue bath experiments.
- Perform EEG and EMG recordings and analyse the data with research-grade tools.
- Undertake complex brain-slice recordings to discover how drugs work and how our brains are organised and function.
- Explore how natural toxins and nerve agents are used in the research lab to discover how our brain cells talk to each other.
- Discover more about the major diseases and disorders of the nervous system.
- Hear from leading clinicians in our guest lectures.
- Understand how research conducted at Aston University into areas like Parkinson’s, autism, dyslexia, epilepsy and developmental cognitive neuroscience is impacting the wider field of study.
Studying neuroscience opens up a huge range of opportunities for graduates in the UK and internationally. This includes clinical neurophysiology, applied research in academia and industry, as well as undertaking roles in big data and artificial inelegance, policy and funding, patent law, medical writing, and postgrad medicine.
