This course examines the elementary processes of learning and memory and the neurobiological mechanism that underpin them. These include: learning about relations between events (Pavlovian conditioning), learning about relations between one’s behaviour and events (Instrumental conditioning), and how these forms of learning control behaviours. There will be an emphasis on the current experimental and theoretical research, including the role of neural systems in supporting behaviour, the role of molecular signalling cascades and neuronal encoding in learning and memory.
