This course is concerned with integrating the understanding of human behaviour and the understanding of physiological mechanisms relating to behaviour, particularly those of the nervous system and brain. Students are introduced to neurons and neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and the methods used in physiological research. These core areas allow students to understand how nervous system mechanisms contribute to sensorimotor function, ingestion, sexual behaviour, memory, thought, language and consciousness, addictions and psychological disorders.
This course will require you to be online for live lectures at the scheduled time. There will also be some pre-recorded lectures. Class recordings will be available until the end of the exam period. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
