Prospective undergraduate students
Cognitive neuroscience at Deakin begins in your undergraduate psychology degree. Expert CNU staff teach two neuroscience-specific undergraduate units:
- HPS310 Brain, Behaviour and Biology is a core Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) unit that explores contemporary neurobiological explanations of human behaviour.
- HPS395 Cognitive Neuroscience is an elective unit that provides an advanced examination of current issues, theories, methods and applications relevant to the area of cognitive neuroscience.
Please see the relevant course structure for more information.
Each year the CNU offers a limited number of unpaid internships to undergraduate students who are interested in a career in cognitive neuroscience.
If you are interested in being considered for an internship within the CNU, please contact Professor Karen Caeyenberghs.
