Neuroscience and Medicine: Inside the Brain and Nervous System
Think of your brain as the command center of your emotions, bodily functions and nervous system. How does it transmit messages to keep everything running? What happens when a neurological disorder appears? What are some of today’s advanced treatments for neurological disorders? These questions are at the heart of neuroscience. In this course, you’ll discover the basics of how neuroscience informs exciting developments in medicine. If you are interested in science, medicine, psychology or other STEM-related subjects, don’t miss this educational adventure. Learn through engaging video lessons by Case Western Reserve University instructors Barbara Kuemerle, PhD, and Ashley Nemes-Baran, PhD.
All course options, whether 2 or 4 weeks, have the identical educational content, learning materials, and number of assignments. The difference in length of course is due to time of year (not amount of instruction). We know the school year keeps you busy, so we’ve made the course longer during that time so that you can get assignments done. Cost: $995
