The auditory transduction process occurs primarily at auditory receptors called inner hair cells
The nervous system has two major divisions the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous
The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord.

Learning is defined as the process of acquiring new information, behavioural patterns, or abilities
through practices or experiences.
While perceptual learning enables us to recognize objects that have been previously perceived
The primary motor cortex of the frontal lobe is responsible for the execution of movements.
The primary motor cortex has a so-called somatotopic arrangement; which means that each region
within the cortex corresponds to a particular part of the body.
The retina has 3 layers of cells: they are: the photoreceptor layer, bipolar cell layer and ganglion cell
rod cells of the retina are responsible for dim light vision,
cone cells of the retina are responsible for daytime vision.

Executive function is an umbrella term for a range of cognitive processes that enable us to work in
novel situations, where automatic behaviours are not sufficient.

Attention can be defined as a process by which we select certain information and discard other
information, for enhanced processing and analysis.
Endogenous attention is driven by our internal goals.
Exogenous attention is driven by external stimuli.
The three key symptoms of Broca's aphasia are agrammatism, anomia and articulation difficulties.
Broca's aphasia is characterized by slow, nonfluent and laborious speech.
Wernicke's aphasia is characterised by fluent but meaningless speech and little
A single dissociation refers to the situation where a patient is impaired on one task but relatively
spared on another.
A double dissociation refers to the situation where two single dissociations have a complementary
profile of abilities.
