NEUR2001: Human Neurobiology

2024 unit information

Human Neurobiology will explore the biology behind brain and nerve function and how this underpins cognition, sensation, movement, affect and motivation. You will work with experts in the field to understand how the biology of single cells, groups of cells and whole systems work together and respond to the environment. Studying brain function will give insights into the biological basis of complex human processes such as learning, memory, and cognition and this will be related to dysfunction, disease and approaches to treatment.
