About this Unit
This unit builds on the information studied in 100022 - Biological Psychology and Perceptual Processes. It provides information on the neural and hormonal substrates of (a) learning, memory and cognition; (b) motivational and emotional behaviours; (c) states of consciousness; and (d) disorders of the human brain. Many of these topic areas have been studied in other units. Neuroscience extends the information obtained in those units by describing the biological basis in detail.
