METHOD OF INSTRUCTION: Distance Learning Higher Education

 

This distance learning education program is completed by a traditional correspondence instruction method. Once you sign up for the course, Bircham International University will send you (to your mailing address) the suggested textbooks. After reading the book, you will be asked to write a 20 to 35 pages report that reflect your understanding of the book. This report is equivalent to the exam and can be submitted by email or mail. Bircham International University will evaluate your written work. If passed, BIU will issue the corresponding diploma. For more instructions about BIU pedagogy, tutoring, and evaluation, please read our distance learning education study guide. More info...

 

Students enrolling into this distance education program should be aware that:
1. Location: Bircham International University needs a functional geographical location to ship the book and materials for successful completion of this program of study.
2. Communication: Email, courier, phone are key communication instruments with Bircham University that play an important role in the progress and support of this program of study.
3. Capacity: Any impediment, physical or psychological, to read a book and write a report must be communicated to Bircham International University prior to enrollment into this distance learning program.
4. Technology: No specific technology is required to complete this distance education program.
5. Language: Book reading and report writing in other language than English must be requested (and approved by BIU) prior to enrollment in any distance learning program.
6. Discrimination: There is no discrimination with respect to race, color, gender, beliefs or religion.
7. Age: Check the admission requirements for each distance education degree program. More info...

 

All information related to the distance learning degree programs is in English, although you may, upon request and approval, submit the required assignments in other languages.

 

Duration - Neural & Brain Science Online via distance learning

For a program of 21 credits, the estimated time for completion is 21 weeks. For 45 credits, the estimated time for completion will be 45 weeks, and so on. Calculations are approximate. The length of each distance learning degree program is calculated based on an average of 15 hours of learning per week. It also depends on the number of validated credits from previous knowledge and the level of commitment to the studies.

Neural Science
The juncture of biology and psychology, of brain and behavior... This course provides a comprehensive coverage, from the molecular level right up to human conscious experience, of the relationship between the structural and the physiological mechanisms of the brain and of the nervous system with the psychological reality of the mind.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck

Biological Psychology
This course offers a comprehensive survey of the biological bases of behavior. It describes the development of the nervous system, the biological mechanisms of perception and action, and the biochemical regulation of behavior, emotions, and mental disorders.
Academic Supervisor : Fernando Miralles

Cellular Neurobiology
This course discusses the physical principles underlying the cellular processes of neurobiology. It covers topics such as the principles of brain organization, the structure of neurons, neurophysiology and biophysics of cells, synaptic transmission, neurotransmitter systems and neurochemistry, neuropharmacology, neuroendocrine relations, and molecular biology of neurons.
Academic Supervisor : Fernando Miralles

Developmental Neurobiology
This course covers the development of the nervous system from the molecular up to the system level, including the development and plasticity of the brain, aging and diseases of the nervous system, the organization of sensory and motor systems, the structure and function of cerebral cortex, synaptic remodeling and the modeling of neural systems, and the mechanisms involved in behavior control and higher mental processes.
Academic Supervisor : Fernando Miralles

Neurobiochemistry
This course exposes the current questions and experimental approaches in cellular neuroscience and neurochemistry. It is organized into three areas: the cell and biochemical structure and organization of the nervous system; the biochemical mechanisms underlying neural signaling and plasticity; and the control of cell form and its chemical developmental determinants.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Systems Neuroscience
This course discusses system neurobiology. It illustrates neurobiology using invertebrate and vertebrate systems as well as artificial neural networks. It examines the structure, function, and plasticity of neural maps; visual processing in the retina and cerebral cortex; sensorimotor integration; central pattern generators; neuromodulation; synaptic plasticity; and theoretical models of associative memory, information theory, and neural coding.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Cognitive Neuroscience
This course examines the neurological basis of cognition. It studies brain-injured patients, neurophysiological research in animals, normal cognitive processes in humans, and non-invasive behavioral and physiological techniques. It examines perception and object recognition, attention, language, motor control and executive functions, and the neural systems involved in learning and remembering different types of information.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Artificial Neural Networks
This course covers the fundamentals and applications of biologically-inspired artificial neural networks. It examines the implementation of several neural net topologies and their related learning algorithms. It considers recent advances in neural networks, high-speed optical networks, switch architectures, and wireless computing.
Academic Supervisor : Alba Garcia Seco de Herrera
