Start: anytime, Online Course.

The online course “Understanding the Brain: The Neurobiology of Everyday Life” is designed to be self-contained and accessible to anyone, from non-scientists interested in the material to those who have already had some formal training in neurobiology.

This course was designed by the University of Chicago, which is one of the world’s premier academic and research institutions. It has driven new ways of thinking since it was founded in 1890. Today, UChicago is an intellectual destination that draws inspired scholars to Hyde Park and international campuses, keeping UChicago at the nexus of ideas that challenge and change the world.

In this course you will learn how the nervous system produces behavior, how we use our brain every day, and how neuroscience can explain the common problems afflicting people today. We will study functional human neuroanatomy and neuronal communication, and then use this information to understand how we perceive the outside world, move our bodies voluntarily, stay alive, and play well with others.

The course covers the following topics:

    • The Nervous System
    • Neural Communication + Embodied Emotion
    • Neuroanatomy
    • Perception and Vision
    • Hearing
    • The Vestibular Sense & Gaze
    • Voluntary Movements
    • Motor Modulation
    • Homeostasis
    • Abstract Function
