Developmental and biological psychology (6 points)
Leader: Dr Vickii Jenvey (Clayton/Caulfield/Gippsland)
Synopsis: Continuation of two first-year psychology topics: developmental psychology and biological psychology. Developmental psychology encompasses physical, cognitive, and social-emotional changes across the life span and how these are shaped by macrosystems such as culture, and microsystems such as peers and the family. Biological psychology includes states of consciousness, mental disorders and addiction, mechanisms and disorders of learning and memory, and the regulation of emotional and motivated states. The laboratory program complements the lecture series, and provides further training in research techniques, report writing, oral presentations and teamwork.
