PSY308 Behavioural Neuropsychology

Behavioural Neuropsychology continues the study of behaviour from the perspective of the neurosciences, which was introduced in PSY244 Physiological Psychology and/or PSY208 Biological Bases of Behaviour. Behavioural neuropsychology focuses on the biological basis of human behaviour. Behavioural neuropsychology combines psychology and biology. Its goal, using methods in physiological psychology is to understand the mechanisms of behaviour in humans and animals. In this unit there is a strong focus upon contemporary issues in neuropsychology, and the ways in which neuroscience research can further our knowledge of normal processes of attention, learning, memory and emotion, and how this research can inform our understanding of human psychopathology.
