Dr Chris Tinsley teaches in various aspects of Pharmacology and Neuroscience including Basic Pharmacology, Pharmacokinetics, Clinical Pharmacology, the Pharmacology of Memory and Cognitive Neuroscience.
Dr Tinsley is interested in the structural and functional organisation of the cerebral cortex. Previously he has studied cortical function using neurophysiological, behavioural and anatomical approaches. Currently Dr Tinsley's main research focus is the structural organisation of cortical connections and cytoarchitecture.
Opportunities to carry out postgraduate research towards an MPhil/PhD exist and further information may be obtained from the NTU Graduate School.
