Biological Basis of Behaviour

This course examines the relationship between biology, behaviour and mental processes, in particular the role of the brain and nervous system. It is specifically designed for anyone interested in biology and human behaviour. You will also assess whether the study of animal behaviour helps us understand our own behaviour.

This Short Course can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.

    30 credits at level 4
