Learn about nervous system control and behaviour. This course provides a different perspective on psychology; with insights into how many psychological disorders can be more to do with the physical condition of a person than purely their experiences, attitudes, genetics or learning experiences. It is a fascinating study for anyone interested in either psychology or human biology; and a useful course for anyone working in areas related to health or psychology.

What I would highlight The course was a significant learning knowledge for me since I could to find out about the specialized parts of the information technology. I like the way the course was organized in light of the fact that one can take in a ton at an advantageous time as there are no due dates to completion of assignments. Its exceptionally adaptable and helpful.

What could be improved Everything OK.

What I would highlight I appreciated the course and built up a decent comprehension of learning and behavioural issues. I feel this will be useful in my part as a Clerk at a neighborhood primary school. The course lived up to my desires and I appreciated the test of finding out about conditions i knew minimal about. The presentation of the course and the chance to speak with my mentor was important. I delighted in the course so much , I am wishing to do another one.

What could be improved Everything was positive.
