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.
