  • Overview

    Pre-requisites: Biological Psychology

    The first part of this module examines the general principles of neuronal communication at a more detailed level than when initially encountered in Biological Psychology. This knowledge is then related to the brain’s ability to adapt, to learn and to commit to memory and also to the complex circuits involved in specific sensory functions, such as vision and audition. Plasticity is a theme that runs throughout the module and we also consider the role of genetics in neuroscience Assessment: Group presentation (50%) ; In-class Test (50%).
