Behavioural and clinical neuroscience

We study human and non-human animal behaviour from a biological perspective. We'll teach you about brain development, ageing and plasticity, neurogenetic bases of behaviour and brain mechanisms involved in higher cognitive functions, including communication. We'll also explore brain mechanisms involved in basic and complex forms of learning and memory, motivated action such a feeding, sleep and circadian rhythms, sensory and motor systems, and different mental health conditions including drug addiction, anxiety and schizophrenia.
