Plasticity & Memory
For this specialisation students with a BSc in Biology should be familiar with basic principles of biophysics, corresponding to the level of R.K. Hobbie (1997), ‘Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology’. Students in BioMedical Sciences should be familiar with basic principles of Neuroscience and Biophysics, corresponding to Kandel et al. (2000), ‘Principles of Neural Science’, or R.K. Hobbie (1997), ‘Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology’. Students with a BSc in Psychology should have completed introductory courses in Psychonomics, Perception or Motor Control. The approximate levels of these courses correspond to chapters in M. Gazzaniga (2000), ‘The New Cognitive Neurosciences’, S. Palmer (1999), ‘Vision Science’, and D. Rosenbaum (1992), ‘Human Motor Control’, respectively.
