Behavioural Neuroscience

The research group investigates the fundamental learning and memory processes that form the fabric of our mental life; behavioural, psychopharmacological, neuroanatomical and genetic approaches are used to understand the mechanics of learning and its underlying biology; the course also examines higher order processes, such as the dependence of learned associations on context; this understanding of learning is also applied to the clinical study of diseases in which associative processes are disordered; (in schizophrenia, research finds that learning occurs inappropriately about stimuli that would normally be treated as irrelevant, redundant or in some other way indistinct).
