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

Causes of Mental Disorders
All functional "mental disorders" are fully understandable bio-social reactions to emotional conflict and stress. These reactions generally originate in and are perpetuated by how one deals with frustrating, perplexing, oppressive, dangerous, or destructive interpersonal and societal situations. This course explains how these reactions are not only caused by, but also can naturally lead to certain biochemical imbalances.
Academic Supervisor : Shelley-Ann Meihuizen

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

Mental Biochemical Balance
This course discusses mental biochemical imbalances from a psychological rather than drug standpoint. Avoiding the usage of mind altering drugs prevents their serious side effects on feelings' suppression and brain function impairment.
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

Psychophysiology
This course examines the relationship between physiological processes and human behavior. It explains the functions of the brain and the autonomic nervous system with emphasis on the biological bases of emotion, pain, psychosomatic processes, sexuality, stress, and sleep. It also covers topics of neuroanatomy, research techniques, physiology, sensory processes, and the functions of the central nervous system.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Psychopathology
This course provides current clinical descriptions, research, and theories of human psychopathology and an overview of mental disorders. It covers both internal (anxiety, depression, suicide, and somatic disorders) and external (conduct disorder and substance abuse) problems and autism. It examines theoretical perspectives, diagnostic criteria, etiology, treatment, and risk.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck

Psychopharmacology
This course provides an overview of pharmacology and neurology and covers topics related to preclinical and clinical psycho-pharmacology. It specifically examines the drugs used in treating mental and neurological disorders and considers those substances that have abuse or addiction potential.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck

Drug Addictions
This course examines the behavioral characteristics of addiction, drug- and learning- induced brain changes, the psychology of choice, obsessive compulsive disorder and its neural substrates, and the distinction between voluntary and involuntary behavior. It explores the psychological, social, legal, and situational factors involved in drug usage, its effect on human behavior and criminal activity, and critical issues in drug control initiatives.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Natural Psycho-Medication
Natural psychotherapy refers to the use of medication-free or natural medication such as herbs, homeopathy, and flower remedies for treatment purposes. This course discusses the effects that these can have on tranquilizing acute emotional distress in order for psychotherapy to succeed.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck

Herbs Psychopharmacology
Nature uses herbs to trigger healing mechanisms in the body and mind to maintain and restore mental balance and health. This course provides an understanding of the brain neurochemical mechanisms and how psycho-biochemical effects may be achieved using herbs.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck

Clinical Psychology
This course is designed to extend psychology in a clinical direction. It approaches psychological issues from a medical perspective. It explains how clinical and pharmacological based approaches can translate into high quality care for patients with major psychiatric problems.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck
