  1. Hey, I thought it'd be a good idea to make a thread for postgraduate psych/cog neuro at UCL since it's all part of the same department (Psychology & Language Sciences).

    I'll be doing the MRes Cognitive Neuroscience course (2016-2017).

  2. Hi Adam,

    Cheers for making this thread. I'll be starting the MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience this September. So I am guessing that we will be having some classes together.

    I studied for a BSc in Psychology & Cognitive Neuroscience at The University of Nottingham - Malaysia Campus (2012-2015) and have been working as a research assistant at the same institution for the past year.

    What are your research interests?

    Regards,
    Azrin

    I studied BSc Psychology at UCL (2010-2013) and I'll be doing the MRes Cognitive Neuroscience course (2016-2017).

    Also, since I'm familiar with UCL and the psychology department, let me know if you have any questions (although I'm not a representative!).

    Cheers,
    Adam

  3. Hi Azrin, I'm glad you come across the thread! I'm very interested in memory, imagination, and decision-making, as well as cognitive biases. So in terms of brain areas, mainly hippocampus and PFC. What about you?
