Overview The BSc Neuroscience degree covers a wide range of disciplines, giving students the extensive practical and theoretical experience needed for a wide range of careers including clinical research and the pharmaceutical industry. Why study the BSc Neuroscience at Middlesex University? Students studying Neuroscience at Middlesex examine the function and dysfunction of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves – training in a number of different disciplines. This includes human behaviour, molecular neurobiology, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, neurological and psychiatric disorders, and neurogenetics. During the degree you will learn how to carry out specialist procedures such as psychophysiological monitoring, electroencephalography (EEG) and brain imaging techniques, which are used in both research and the diagnosis of neurological disorders. There is also the opportunity to spend a year working in industry between the second and third years. The degree is particularly appropriate if you are interested in a career in the pharmaceutical industry or clinical research, as it prepares you for further study in drug development, neurone and glial cell culture, and molecular neuroscience. The broad specialised and personal skills gained by this programme can be applied to a variety of careers in science or non-science sectors, including academia, teaching and the Public Sector Course highlights A recent £3 million investment into state-of-the-art bioanalytical laboratories for teaching and research means our facilities rival the UK's leading medical schools Boost your employability skills by spending your third year working on an industry placement with the support of our Employability Service Our laboratories provide the next generation of scientific instrumentation for molecular analysis – in line with the new focus on protein-hunting rather than gene-hunting in scientific research Learn from the expertise of our teaching staff who are leading researchers in cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and neuroscience As a student of this course you will receive a free electronic textbook for every module.
