**Under 18s**

The course is intended as an introduction to current research in neuroscience. Neuroscience is a vast science which includes molecular science and genetics, cell and systems biology, psychology and philosophy. During the course, I will attempt to explain our current understanding on topics such as memory, perception, decision-making and consciousness. Human brain is the most complex organ of our body which is responsible for who we are, how we feel and what decisions we take. I will try to show you why the study of neurosciences is equally fascinating as the brain itself.
