Introductory Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

15 points



This course will introduce the disciplines of cognitive and behavioural neuroscience in addition to covering relevant aspects of developmental neuroscience and neuropharmacology. We will cover how the brain develops and changes with sensory inputs and experiences as we learn and update information, navigate the environment, make decisions, and produce actions. Different neuroscience techniques will be introduced, and we will reflect on how changes in perceptual processing, as well as our genetics and environment influence our brain development. This course will also cover the regulations associated with the ethical treatment and welfare of animal models and humans involved in neuroscience research.
