Introduces students to key concepts in Neuroscience including neuroplasticity and neural signalling. Examines the structure and function of sensory systems, motor systems, autonomic nervous system, cranial nerves and brainstem nuclei. Provides a neural basis for the understanding of these systems and how they function together.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
