A2 Fundamental Neuroscience (30 credits) (Module)

Module description

This module is the second of the three compulsory modules that together aim to introduce you to subject areas that are considered fundamental to an MSc in Neuroscience and to enable you to decide which aspects of neuroscience you wish to specialise in after graduating and hence, inform your choice of specialised module and research project. The introductions are considered to be necessary because undergraduate degrees rarely cover the range of disciplines (e.g. in physiology, biochemistry, or genetics, etc) encountered in neuroscience research.

Module A1 introduced you to some fundamental aspects of neuroanatomy/neuropathology and cell functioning/signalling. This module, A2, will take this to the next level of complexity and will cover multi-cellular systems.

These are:

  • A2.1 Neurogenetics
  • A2.2 Developmental neurobiology
  • A2.3 Neuronal plasticity
  • A2.4 Neuroimmunology
