Overview

Master of Arts in Psychology - Brain, Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience

Behavioural Neuroscience - uses animal models to understand brain-behaviour correlates. Examples include the influence of genetics, emotions and other brain states on general behaviours as well as on learning and memory. 

Applications of this research include assessing the effectiveness of therapies for people with brain injuries. Systems Neuroscience - explores the dynamic neural mechanisms that correspond to behavioural state (for example sleep versus waking).

 It also explores how perceptual neural systems represent complex sensory stimuli such as visual motion and species-specific calls. 

Cognitive Neuroscience - using experimental techniques, clinical studies of brain-damaged patients, and brain imaging methods, cognitive neuroscientists study the brain's role in higher cognitive functions such as in memory, language access, reasoning, and object recognition.
