These notes cover the full subject of PSYC30020: The Integrated Brain for Semester 2, 2020. In this complete lecture notes summary, important components are highlighted in different colours (red - more important, blue - mainly for MCQs). The concepts are mostly described in words accompanied by diagrams. Each lecture starts with learning outcomes and ends with a summary. These notes helped me to achieve not only excellent scores in final exam but also H1 for the subject. I used these notes alone to learn and revise the subject repetitively for the exam.
