NSW Stage 6 Biology

Infectious and Non-Infectious diseases of the brain
Our standard presentation has been adjusted to not only give students the full EEG Mind Control experience, but focus on infectious and non-infectious diseases of the brain.

For module 7, teachers choose one or two of the following three diseases as our focus.
⇒ Meningitis
⇒ HIV associated neurodegeneration

Content focus: The treatment, prevention and control of infectious disease both locally and globally. The study of the human immune system and its response to infectious disease. This includes:

  • Modes of transmission
  • Transmission during epidemic
  • Types of pathogens and the body’s response to exposure
  • Adaption of the pathogens to assist host to host transmission
  • Symptoms, imaging and treatment

For module 8, teachers choose one or two  of the following three diseases as our focus.
⇒ Parkinson’s
⇒ Alzheimer’s
⇒ Epilepsy
⇒ Cardiovascular disease (whole-body related)

Content focus: Engagement with the study of non-infectious disease and disorders including causes and effects on human health. This includes technologies in treating the disease and the epidemiology of non-infectious brain disease. We include:

  • Causes and effects – genetic susceptibility and new research
  • Internal systems allowing homeostasis via neural pathways
  • Symptoms and imaging
  • Technology used in Treatment and management
  • Patterns of the disease in a population

A smaller section is dedicated to the brainwaves that aid information retention and release – vital for students doing the HSC. The entire session is 90 minutes.

Outcome Points
