Introduction to Psychology: Biological Psychology

Assoc Prof Matthew Mundy, Monash University

Explore the intriguing world of biological psychology

On this course, you’ll explore a fascinating branch of psychology, which looks at the connection between behaviour and human biological functions, in particular, the nervous system.

You’ll examine the role that genetics, heredity, genetic disorders, the nervous system and the brain and spinal cord plays in shaping our bodies and behaviour.

You’ll also investigate the role that neurotransmitters and heritable diseases play in our behaviour and you’ll leave the course with your own unique perspectives on some of the most biological psychology research.

This introductory course is for anyone interested in psychology - you don’t need any past experience.

It might be of particular use to learners who have already completed a Bachelor degree in other disciplines who are interested in expanding their science and research skills.

This course is part of the Introduction to Psychology Program, based on the first unit of Monash University’s fully online Graduate Diploma of Psychology (GDP).
