Neuroscience

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Felicia Rivera Megret

Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is the scientific study of the nervous system. The scope of neuroscience has broadened over time to include different approaches used to study the nervous system at the different scales and the techniques used by neuroscientists have expanded enormously, from molecular and cellular studies of individual neurons to imaging of sensory and motor tasks in the brain. Neuroscience has also given rise to such other disciplines as neuroeducation, neuroethics, and neurolaw.

This module looks at neuroscience at KS4 and KS5 level. It examines the main functions of the brain, the brain and neuron structures with their functions.

We will explore

  • What is neuroscience?
  • An overview of the brain
  • What are neurons?
  • Neuron structures and their functions
  • Neuroscience for the future

Our Neuroscience module lasts for 10 hours in total (there are 4x modules made up of 2.5 hour activities each)

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
