Module overview

The aim of this module is to expose students to research level studies in a number of areas related to the function of the nervous system, necessary to understand the pathophysiology of neurological conditions. The course will describe CNS development, and the structure and functions of neural cell populations. Following this, research into the mechanisms underlying learning & memory will be discussed, as will analyses of neural circuits controlling behaviour.
