Module overview

This module offers an introduction to Neurobiology, covering fundamental topics such as cells of the nervous system, development of the brain and spinal cord, and the neural basis of behaviour. It is available to students from a broad range of life science subjects including biological sciences, psychology, and physical science. Topics include 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 assumes a basic knowledge of biological principles and includes optional classes for those who have not already taken modules (e.g. CDEV1001 or Physiology PHOL1001/1002) that deal with resting potentials and action potentials.
