From touch to pain, how do you think you feel sensation? It’s all the work of nerve.  The study of the nervous system is known as Neuroscience. This course will focus on history of Neuroscience at Oxford, the four centuries of discovery, eye movements and cognitive function in Parkinson’s disease; cell transplants to treat the ‘disease’ of chronic pain; detecting, tracking, and predicting motor neuron disease. You will learn to define the genetic architecture of Alzheimer’s disease, Glymphatic System.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

  • Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
  • Show it to prove your success
