Free Neuropsychology Courses

A wide variety of classes dealing with neuropsychology can be studied online through the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. All courses are designed for graduate students, and most include assignments. Topics range from the primary functional component of the central and peripheral nervous system to the organization of the mind and brain.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Individuals who want to study advanced concepts in neuropsychology can find several graduate courses using MIT's OpenCourseWare. Courses that deal with human and animal brains address subject matters in memory loss, neurodegenerative diseases, modularity, innateness, plasticity, the mind and other domains. Students also study the brain's ability to recognize visual objects by completing survey and analysis of data from humans and monkeys. Another class that deals with primates is designed for future researchers and scientists who want to work in the visual science field.

Other advanced courses lecture on synaptic connectivity organization and its relationship to learning and neural computation as well as neural networks, memory formation and motor skills. Also available is a lab course that's intended for students to perform neurophysiological experiments and learn various techniques in modern electrophysiology.
