Neuroscience course descriptions

You can launch this Neuroscience program by adding 4 Rize courses to your existing catalog, enabling you to market a Neuroscience degree to prospective students in as little as one semester. Expand below to read the course descriptions.

NSM I - Neuroscience Foundations

This course introduces students to the field of neuroscience, explores the cellular and molecular basis of neural systems, and discusses the neural basis of cognition. Students are expected to leverage their understanding of biology and chemistry to build a working knowledge of neuroscience fundamentals. This online class has optional live sessions.

NSM II - Biological Basis of Perception and Movement

Perception and Movement are fundamentally driven by biological processes. This course provides students with an understanding of the various systems and organs that play a role in the human ability to perceive the world and move through it. It builds upon Neuroscience Fundamentals to allow students to understand the impact of core neuroscience concepts. This online class has optional live sessions.

NSM III - Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive Neuroscience is the study of the biological process which underlie behavior, learning, thought and experience. This course builds on students’ understanding of neuroscience and psychology to explore information processing, behavior, language, and more. Special attention is paid to the neurological factors which drive behavior and give rise to a range of disorders. This online class has optional live sessions.

NSM IV - Clinical Neuropathology

This course captures foundational concepts in modern psychiatric care and neuroscience and makes them clear and accessible. It provides students with a broad knowledge base covering many of the latest developments in the field of neuroscience, including our most modern understanding of developmental disorders, various pathologies of neurological systems, the role of microbiology in neurological care and more. Upon completion, students will be well prepared to pursue graduate study or work in the sciences, armed with a strong understanding of the current state of both Neuroscience and Mental Health and the connections between both. This online class has optional live sessions.
