This has to be the most comprehensive notes for PSYC30020 you can find! Perfect for preview before the semester and revision during the semester I have made two versions for this subject, mainly because of the size of the document. There are 20 lectures in total (2 per week) and my notes include not only the things on the slides but also in the readings, from online resources, from what the lecturers have said, from discussion board. This is the **Extended Version** where you can find everything, especially the readings and journals (highlighted in yellow). If you feel like you don’t require such detailed notes and you just want the core information and a structure, you can check out the **Short Version** in my listing. The main features of this note that other notes do not have: - During the semester I have grouped things in toggle lists based on relevance —- you can see them in grey highlight (, “What is the difference between neurotransmitter and hormone?” — this is not directly described in lecture notes, but is a popular question item in exam and assignment) - Since I have no science background, I have written down relevant resources I researched online to help me understand certain concepts. So if you are just like me and wanna learn more about some biological or neuro concept, this is perfect for you as a preview before the semester starts! - Pls note that I was not able to include images in the notes, so it is recommended that you use this with the graphs your lecturer provided in the slides (or you can google relevant concepts yourself, they are all the same just different style/color) The Integrated Brain has been a really difficult subject for lots of students who major in Psychology or Biomed, mainly because students often do not understand everything clearly but just read slides while the assessments are actually more complex than expected and require a good understanding of the concepts. Hope you would find this systematic note helpful!
