Please note that this unit has been replaced with unit PSY224 from 2020.


This unit provides intermediate level 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.

Laboratory classes provide hands-on demonstrations and exercises of some of the topics covered in the lectures. Students develop their understanding of behavioural neuroscience and neuropsychology, and further develop their skills in research design, data analysis and interpretation. Students will also further their skills in reporting findings from psychological research and in critically reviewing literature in the areas covered by the lectures and laboratory classes.

Attendance at laboratory classes is compulsory.
