This course will offer an insight into some of the most important findings that have shaped our understanding of how the brain works. From patients with brain damage, to recordings from single neurons, to images of the brain in action using fMRI, you will learn how psychologists and neuroscientists are coming to understand how our brain works.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.

Printable versions of our brochures are available to download from the Institute Publications page.
