Fundamentals of Neuroscience, Part 3: The Brain

David Cox, HarvardX

Discover what makes your brain tick in this third course in our introductory series in neuroscience.

The human brain is a fantastically complex system, capable of transforming a torrent of incoming information into thought and action. In this course, we will look at how the various subsystems of the brain work together to enable us to survive and thrive in a changing world.

Each lesson will challenge you with interactive segments, animations, and documentaries that explore the richness and complexity of the brain. Our forums will provide you with a place to meet other students around the world, and you can learn from each other through a series of discussion questions.

Do you want to learn about how brains perceive the world? Join us as we explore sensation, perception and the physiology of functional regions of the brain.

What will you 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
  • The visual system of the brain
  • How the motor subsystems of the brain execute and coordinate our movement.
  • The critical brain systems that keep alive
