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. It's an intellectually challenging, practical and rewarding specialism which can bring you into direct contact with the patients you'll be helping. There is currently a shortage of suitably qualified neurophysiologists in the NHS which is where our course comes in.

You’ll gain a sound understanding of potential problems and diseases of the brain and nervous system, the equipment and techniques that can be used to diagnose them and possible treatments. You’ll study three core modules, common to all our postgraduate biomedical and biological science courses: biomedical ethics and law, laboratory leadership and management, and experimental design and statistics. Alongside these you’ll study five specialist cardiac physiology modules: advanced signal processing; paediatric neurophysiology; peripheral neurophysiology; neurophysiology in intensive care; and intraoperative monitoring in neurophysiology.

The core modules will cover how to design and carry out experiments and statistical analyses; literature searching, referencing and citation; aspects of managing a laboratory, from people management to business plans and budgets; safety, regulations and quality management; and ethical and legal issues, such as those surrounding research on animals and humans, assisted reproduction and genetics.

The specialist modules will cover physiological signal sampling and analysis, including EMG and EEG; neurophysiology in children; peripheral neurophysiology and different NCV recording techniques; neurophysiological monitoring in intensive care; and neurophysiological monitoring during operations.

You’ll then work on a dissertation, which will involve planning and carrying out your own independent, analytical research project and critically evaluating your results. You can choose to do either an experimental or observational study, and can base your project at your workplace if you’re in relevant employment. As part of your project, you’ll research relevant literature and carry out a literature review. You’ll present your findings through a written report and a verbal presentation.

If you don’t want to or aren’t able to complete the full MSc, you can also obtain a PG Cert or PG Dip, studying four modules for a PG Cert and eight for a PG Dip, omitting the dissertation.
