Course Overview

On our online Neuroscience course, you’ll gain a strong understanding of the brain’s structure, and how it functions. After you study the anatomy of the human brain, you’ll learn about how different parts of the brain control movement and emotions. You will also explore memory and how the brain learns and stores information, why the brain needs sleep, and now neural pathways form responses to emotions and pain.
You’ll study nerve cells and the way in which they transmit information. You’ll also consider how nerve cells are affected by illness and drugs. In this context, you will look at the relationship between the brain and the spinal cord, and gain an appreciation of sensory systems such as vision, touch and hearing.
