Explore the intriguing world of biological psychology
On this course, you’ll explore a fascinating branch of psychology, which looks at the connection between behaviour and human biological functions, in particular, the nervous system.
You’ll examine the role that genetics, heredity, genetic disorders, the nervous system and the brain and spinal cord plays in shaping our bodies and behaviour.
You’ll also investigate the role that neurotransmitters and heritable diseases play in our behaviour and you’ll leave the course with your own unique perspectives on some of the most biological psychology research.
This introductory course is for anyone interested in psychology - you don’t need any past experience.
It might be of particular use to learners who have already completed a Bachelor degree in other disciplines who are interested in expanding their science and research skills.
I think that this course gives everyone an encouraging first step into the world of Biological Psychology. I just love that there is a space for discussion, where we can share our thoughts, get feedback from the mentors and also see what other learners are thinking about particular subject.

The course mentors were absolutely wonderful and it always brings me great joy to communicate with people who are passionate about what they do - it makes learning so much easier!
