You will investigate the role of biology in a number of different pathologies e.g eating disorders, anxiety, schizophrenia, substance abuse amongst other neurological disorders such as epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. The module explores how our knowledge of the structure and function of the nervous system has given rise to current biological/pharmacological treatments of psychiatric and degenerative pathologies.
