Reviews and tips for PSY236

High content, some background in biology would be a help with this subject. But very interesting and well-delivered content. They take time to walk you through everything that could be complicated, and provided you do attend tutorials and listen to all the lectures, it's not impossible to do well.

The biopsychology element of this unit can be quite challenging, but it was super interesting as well!

Loved this subject. I have always been a sworn anti-science student but I really surprised myself throughout undertaking this course with my excellent marks. What made this subject enjoyable and of ease? The convenor/lecturers of course. Shout out to Dr. Cornish and Dr. Miller - if only they convened/lectured my other psych. units too!

First half of the semester focuses on Biopsychology, which mainly focuses on the brain anatomy and neurotransmitters. If you've done biology in High school, then this goes into more detail. In the second half of the semester, it focuses on Learning and Conditoning using Sniffy the Rat program (in labs) where you get to test the Conditioning situations (Classical, Operant and other related stuff like Extinction). It's interesting but you may get bored waiting for the program to run.
