Module prerequisites: 
Module outline:This module is an introduction to neurobiology, and is aimed at students who are planning further studies in the area of neuroscience. It covers neural structure and function, organisation of the vertebrate nervous system, sensory pathways and perception, neurochemistry and pharmacology and the neural basis of behaviour. The module is available in the second year. It assumes a basic knowledge of biological principles (e.g. A-level). The module is taught jointly by staff from the research departments of Cell and Developmental Biology (CDB), and Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology (NPP), and is intended to complement modules with more specialised neurobiology content. 
Module aims:This module aims to give an overview of how the nervous system functions and how it is structured. It is broad and introductory in nature rather than selective and detailed. Using lectures, practicals and revision tutorials the module covers molecular, cellular, systematic and behavioural aspects.
