AU: 4.0
Programme: PSY(HSS)

Biological psychology assumes that all behaviour can be explained by neural processes occurring within the brain and its interaction with the environment. This course will first examine the general architecture, subcomponents, and inter-cellular communication in the human brain. Next, we will examine the neural substrates of complex behaviours including perception, attention, memory, language, sleep, hunger, and addiction. In summary, students will learn how behavior is instantiated in the brain.
