Overview

Based on the introductory neurobiology courses taught at Harvard University - Harvard University - HarvardX  , Fundamentals of Neuroscience is a three-part series that explores the structure and function of the entire nervous system — from the microscopic inner workings of a single nerve cell to the staggering complexity of the brain.

You’ll study the electrical properties of individual neurons, examine how neurons pass signals to one another, and how complex dynamics result from just a few neurons. You’ll explore sensation, perception, and the physiology of functional regions of the brain.

Through fun animations, documentaries, and interactive virtual labs discover what makes the brain tick and how we perceive the world around us.
