There is currently much interest in the organisation and function of the mammalian brain. The way in which neuronal pathways interact to produce given behaviours, emotions and desires, and capabilities such as sensation and awareness represents one of the hallmarks of today’s research. In addition, disorders of the nervous systems such as paralysis, schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease are of increasing concern to our society. Topics such as these are introduced in lectures, and expanded upon by seminar presentations and three interactive practicals (EEG, brain dissection, virtual anatomy).
This course is restricted to students on the degree of BSc Biomedical Sciences. Students taking this course may not register for AN 4002.
