Behavioural Neuroscience and Neuropsychology KHA358


This is an advanced level unit in the Psychology major (Launceston campus)


This unit provides an advanced coverage of two core areas: behavioural neuroscience and neuropsychology. Lectures in behavioural neuroscience extend and enlarge upon introductory lectures on the biological basis of behaviour in humans. Lectures in neuropsychology will cover the major neuropsychological disorders and syndromes and encourage students to make associations between neuroscience and functional consequences of brain damage. Practical classes provide hands-on demonstrations and exercises of some of the topics covered in the lectures.
