Skip to 0 minutes and 12 secondsMUNDY PHD: What is the connection between behaviour and human biological function and our nervous system? Is it nature, or is it nurture? Just how do our genes and the environment shape our behaviour? Hi. I'm Matthew Mundy, and I'm the Director of Education for the School of Psychological Sciences at Monash University in Australia. In this course, you'll explore the intriguing world of biological psychology. You'll be introduced to genetics and learn about heredity and genetic disorders, the nervous system, the brain and spinal cord, and examine the important contribution these components make to our bodies and behaviour.

This introductory course is designed for everyone, regardless of experience or background. However, learners who have already completed a bachelor degree in a discipline other than psychology and who are interested in expanding their science and research skills would be able to receive additional benefits from completing this course. No prior study of psychology is required or expected. The great thing about this course is it is part of a set of courses that create a for-credit pathway into Monash University's fully online Graduate Diploma of Psychology.
