Unit 4 – Emergent Topics in Neuroscience

As a discipline, neuroscience encompasses the entire range of biology from genetics and molecules to system-level approaches to understanding neurons and the brain. Often this means that neuroscientists are finding new and previously unsuspected influences on how neurons function, and therefore affect behaviour. This unit highlights some of the exciting areas of neuroscience that have emerged over the past decade that promise to give the discipline new avenues of research for the next generation of neuroscientists.
