Explore the human brain, for CPD or as a gateway to further study
This program of three online courses introduces the key concepts of the human brain, before exploring the effects that Parkinson’s disease and drugs have on it.
The Good Brain, Bad Brain program is suitable for anyone who wants to know more about the brain: you may be doing your A-levels and considering a neuroscience-related degree; or you may already be working in healthcare and want to learn more as part of your continuing professional development (CPD).
Either way, the courses provide a flexible way to learn - they are accessible for free on desktop, tablet or mobile and delivered in bite-sized chunks.
And when you complete all three courses and buy a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will earn a FutureLearn Award as proof of completing the program of study.
