This course is a cross-Faculty offering that will address six big questions in modern neuroscience. A new question will be explored each fortnight in lectures, a laboratory class and tutorial. The focus of the course is on the range of disciplines that contribute to the field of neuroscience, and each fortnight's topic will be taught by academics from two or more disciplines using an integrated approach. Students will develop an insight into how problems in neuroscience are investigated and an appreciation of some current issues. The course is a compulsory part of the Neuroscience study plan in Advanced Science (NEURA13972) but is open to other students. Although there are no fixed pre-requisites, students are advised that the following courses will provide a useful background: ANAT2511 BIOC2101 PHPH2101 PSYC2081.
