This module aims to provide an overview of integrated systems which control cognition and behaviour. Topics include the organisation and planning of movement, visual processing, smell and taste perception, cognition, learning and memory. Students will gain understanding of techniques used in systems neuroscience including tract tracing of interacting groups of neurons, immunohistochemistry and extra-cellular electrophysiology. Practical sessions and workshops will give students experience in designing experiments, using apparatus, collecting and interpreting data.
