Introduction

The proposed Certificate in Psychology would explore how the brain enables us to do so many of the things we take for granted, from recognizing objects, to remembering people's faces, to remembering (or not) where we left our keys this morning. It will draw on a broad range of research used in the cognitive neurosciences, from the neuropsychological study of patients with brain damage, to the use of brain imaging techniques that enable us to gain an insight into the areas of the brain that are active when we perform different tasks. You will learn about some of the key specialisations within the brain, and explore some of the most important case-studies in psychology that illustrate what can happen when different areas of the brain are damaged. We will also focus on individual differences in the structure and anatomy of the brain and how these are related to important individual differences in perception, memory and cognition.

The proposed Undergraduate Certificate in Psychology will be a 1 year, part-time course which we are planning to deliver in 12 day-schools from October to June in 2016-2017 supported by online teaching, but are open to alternative teaching models depending on the interests of potential students. The proposed course fee will be £1900.
