Unit Description

This unit will use the knowledge gained in Neurobiology I and Neuroanatomy to explore how constellations of neurons form complex circuits to perform common functions and will include discussion of the major pathological conditions that affect these systems. Topics will include chemical control of brain and behaviour, motivation, sex, emotions, language, attention and consciousness, and the plasticity underpinning learning and memory.

Materials Textbook information will be displayed approximately 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the teaching period. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
Disclaimer Unit information may be subject to change prior to commencement of the teaching period.
Assessment Assessment information will be published prior to commencement of the teaching period.
Learning Outcomes (LO) Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
  1. exhibit a broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge of neuroscience with depth in the concepts and ideas underlying systems neuroscience;
  2. analyse and evaluate information regarding how constellations of neurons form complex circuits to perform common functions;
  3. transmit knowledge, skills and ideas to others both verbally and in written formats;
  4. demonstrate well-developed cognitive skills in the field of systems neuroscience;
  5. demonstrate autonomy and judgement to exhibit a sound knowledge of systems neuroscience; and
  6. demonstrate self-directed learning in the field of systems neuroscience.
