The sensory system consists of different sensory neurons in the brain to facilitate the sensory perception. Examining the neural bases of sensory perception will help you understand the physiological and anatomical studies related to it.

You are provided in this [course_title] with cases studies on the mammalian nervous system. This will help you understand the behavior of animals and humans through learning each of the sensory systems and its functions.


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
