BRAIN, MIND AND BEHAVIOUR
Credit points: 15
In this subject students will explore contemporary neurophysiology, with the emphasis on the process of experimental discovery. The subject will cover functional anatomy of the brain and neural imaging, synaptic integration, computational characteristics of neuronal circuits, information processing in the visual system, and higher functions such as sleep, learning, memory and movement control. The practical component aims to complement the theory and consolidate experimental skills. Class discussion on current topics and controversies in neuroscience will be delivered from a multidisciplinary perspective.
