This unit will explore the molecular, cellular and physiological underpinnings of the nervous system. This knowledge will then be applied to develop a deeper understanding of the neurophysiological basis of sensory perception and behaviour. Topics will include the resting membrane and action potentials; synaptic transmission; and neurotransmitters and molecular signalling. Students will then cover the sensory systems, including chemical sensors, vision, hearing and somatic sensation before exploring the chemical control of brain and behaviour.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
