Full course description
The course covers the range of cognitive and behavioural problems that accompany the most common neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders (e.g. schizophrenia, ADHD, autism and acquired brain injuries). The course provides insight into the underlying neurobiological and psychological mechanisms, and it touches on the principle of vulnerability, and protective/risk factors in the aetiology of behavioural disorders.
You will gain an understanding of the psychological, neurobiological, and epidemiological mechanisms underlying cognitive and biological models of developmental-, psychiatric-, and neurological disorders and neuropsychiatric syndromes.
