The textbook "Fundamentals of Neuroscience," written by the academic staff of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences Tamar Chelidze and Gulkan Khikhadze, covers the neurobiological study of the physiological processes occurring in the nervous system. The morpho-functional characteristics of the nervous system and the mechanisms that guarantee the execution of complex cognitive, motor, and sensory functions are constantly covered throughout the textbook. In addition, the textbook covers the fundamental mechanics of electrical process creation and propagation in living things as well as the concepts of synapses, neurotransmitters, and neural integration.


Tamar Chelidze, Doctor of Biology, worked for years on topical issues of neurobiology in the scientific laboratories of the Universities of Munich (Germany) and Zurich (Switzerland), and Gulkan Khikhadze, Doctor of Biology, was involved in scientific research at the Ivane Beritashvili Center of Experimental Biomedicine to study the relationships between brain structures in memory processes. The involvement of the textbook's authors in educational programs in recent years has resulted in the preparation of educational materials in Georgian for the relevant audience, which will provide students of the Faculty of Psychology with knowledge about the fundamentals of neuroscience.
