Subject outline

This subject will explore theoretical approaches to neural systems and processes relevant to a wide range of normal conscious and unconscious behaviour, and behavioural pathologies, and will provide training in the issues of contemporary cognitive neuroscience. In particular the subject will focus on clinically related aspects of neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative, traumatic brain injury and sensory disorders, as well as nutritional and emotional neuroscience. Students will be introduced to neuroscientific aspects of a number of common testing procedures underlying theoretical approaches to professional practice as part of the tutorial program. The major assignment is aimed at introducing students to developing policy making as used by government departments.
