The module aims to develop the themes introduced in the Introduction to Psychology Module in semester 1. The module integrates the approaches and findings of biological psychology in an attempt to understand the biological factors that explain why people behave as they do. The module will examine how innate biological mechanisms control our desires. For example how is hunger and satiation controlled within the body. We then apply those principles to understand how the system might break down and might lead to conditions such as Obesity
The module is one of the pre-requisites for PSYC2025 and PSYC3048.
