The aim of Biopsychology is to introduce students to paradigms for the explanation and study of behaviour that are characterised by a focus on the functioning of the nervous system. This subject will introduce students to basic principles of neuroscience, including neuron structure and function, neurotransmission, and functional neuroanatomy. These will be examined within the broader framework of the structures of behaviour (innate and acquired), as well as functional systems (eg. sensation, perception, motor control and memory).
