This subject provides students with an understanding of fundamental neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. Students will develop an understanding of the sensory, motor and autonomic nervous systems, as well as the vascularisation of the central nervous system. Higher cortical function and dysfunction are also covered. Students will apply their fundamental understanding of neuroscience to investigate the major functional categories of neurological disease, examples of common neurological disorders, and the major classes of pharmaceuticals used to modulate nervous system activity.

A fundamental understanding of basic chemistry, cell physiology, and muscle physiology is assumed knowledge. In particular, students will need to be familiar with electrolytes and their movement across cell membranes to generate action potentials.
