Neurophysiologists diagnose and monitor disorders of the brain and nervous system, from epilepsy, strokes, multiple sclerosis, dementia and Parkinson's disease right down to problems with the tiniest nerves. Our programme will provide you with both in'depth practical experience and comprehensive, up' to'date theoretical knowledge. Our students build their knowledge of modern technologies used in diagnostics and research to solve complex problems related to disease investigation required to progress their own research. Students develop practical skills to carry out experimental research and the critical evaluation and analysis skills required for literature reviews; assessing essential facts, concepts, principles and theories; legal requirements for human experiments and ethical issues relating to research with human subjects and human tissue relevant to your research.
