Special Topic: Human & Animal NeuropsychologyThe course focuses on various CNS disorders. It spans both clinical and experimental perspectives. Neuropsychology is the broad study of the relations between brain function and behaviour. It embraces the functional activity of the normal brain, but the majority of evidence derives from the “behavioural expression of brain dysfunction.” When restricted to humans, this work overlaps the domains of “clinical neuropsychology” and “human experimental neuropsychology.”
At the end of the course, students should:1. Be familiar with current knowledge of some key human neurological conditions that impact psychological experience. 2. Have an understanding of relevant methodologies, including brain imaging, and the process of conducting research in this field.3. Be able to critically assess research papers in the field.
