Semester 2

This module will provide an opportunity to acquire a good understanding of the physiology and anatomy of systems that govern sensory perception and motor function.

After successful completion of this module, you should be able to demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of how nervous systems, in particular the motor and sensory systems, are built and function, using examples from all stages of neural organization (at the molecular, cellular, circuits and systems levels). The module will emphasize the basic principles required for sensation and action and will build upon the neuroscience content introduced in the core curriculum at Levels 1 and 2.
