This foundation unit builds student capacity in information literacy using the brain as an example of a biological system. Students learn how to access and interpret different forms of scientific literature, develop a scientific vocabulary that will form the springboard for further studies in their degree path, and learn the fundamental principles of neuroscience. Neuroscience is the study of how the nervous system works, how the cells of the system are organised and how they develop and change in the presence of common pathological conditions, including dementia.
