HD PSY2061 (Biological Psychology) Notes

66 pages

21,825 words




These are the exact notes I used when studying Biological Psychology, and which I achieved a HD (86) with.

The notes are very comprehensive, make use of headings and subheadings, contain diagrams/images, and are based on both the prescribed readings and lectures.

Contents include:
- Development of the Nervous System;
- Research Methods;
- Anatomy and Function of the Nervous System;
- Neural Conduction and Synaptic Transmission;
- Sensory Systems;
- Control of Action;
- Brain Damage and Neuroplasticity;
- Learning, Memory and Amnesia;
- Drug Addiction and the Brain's Reward Circuits;
- Biopsychology of Emotion, Stress and Health;
- Biopsychology of Psychiatric Disorders;
- Sleep, Dreaming and Circadian Rhythms.
