Do you want to learn about how brains perceive the world? Join us in this third module as we explore sensation, perception and the physiology of functional regions of the brain. Each lesson will be media- and content-rich and will challenge you to master material with interactive segments that depend on your feedback to move forward in the lesson.

Lessons will also be filled with beautiful animations, documentaries and DIY experiments that allow you to explore the richness and complexity of the brain.

Our forums will provide you with a place to meet other students around the world. You can learn from each other as well as discuss questions with members of our team during office hours.

What you'll learn

  • How sensory perception works in the brain
  • How the physiology of vision, hearing, taste, smell, touch, motor control and other senses work
  • The basic anatomy of functional areas of the brain
