Making decisions is all credited as a work of your brain. Learning how your brain functions through understanding neuronal dynamics is helpful since it explains how neurons in your brain work together without a central control unit.

The main objective of this Neuronal Dynamics of Cognition Online Course is to guide you in understanding the basic functions of the neurons in our brain. You will be introduced the field of neuroscience to explain the different mathematical and computational models to analyze your brain.


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
