Cognitive Psychology Dissertation Topics Cognitive psychology investigates the way the human brain represents information. It seeks to explore the underlying processes involved through experimentation, computer modelling and neuropsychology. Theories attempt to understand how information is encoded in the brain at macro and micro levels.
Students interested in the Cognitive Neuroscience Triple PhD must meet the above course and thesis requirements. The student’s thesis advisor must be a participating faculty member of the Cognitive Neuroscience faculty.
Designed for graduates of psychology and other related disciplines (biomedical sciences, neuroscience, psychophysiology), this course introduces you to various topics in cognitive neuroscience, normal and abnormal development of perceptual and higher level cognitive functions across the lifespan.
Study psychology, clinical and cognitive neuroscience at Royal Holloway and you’ll graduate with a range of desirable transferable skills, including advanced literacy and numeracy skills, critical reading, report writing, interviewing, survey research, observation, experimentation and the ability to use statistical methods to assess research findings.
The MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience is aimed at home and international students who are seeking to build on their undergraduate qualifications to develop their project management skills and theoretical knowledge for a career in research or related disciplines.
About the course Overview. Application closing date: 31st August 2020. Studying our MSc in Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience will expose you to advanced topics in the study of cognition and behaviour including attention, perception, memory, decision-making, and emotion. Furthermore, the course will explore how these cognitive processes link to brain mechanisms by exploring cognitive.
The dissertation will include the write up of at least one experimental investigation in the area of cognitive neuroscience. Two independent examiners will be appointed to read and evaluate the dissertation and you will be invited to make an oral defence of your work.
