Introduction to Psychology: Biological Psychology (FutureLearn)

Understand the link between behaviour and human biology, and learn how genes and the environment influence our behaviour. On this course, you’ll explore a fascinating branch of psychology, which looks at the connection between behaviour and human biological functions, in particular, the nervous system.

You’ll examine the role that genetics, heredity, genetic disorders, the nervous system and the brain and spinal cord plays in shaping our bodies and behaviour.

You’ll also investigate the role that neurotransmitters and heritable diseases play in our behaviour and you’ll leave the course with your own unique perspectives on some of the most biological psychology research.
