Training Provided By: BioPharma Institute

Availability: Immediately available upon ordering.

Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment. BioPharma Institute ReviewsThe visual pathway is an intricate and elegant system that detects and processes light and then converts it into electrical signals that ultimately form visual images. This course covers the mechanisms involved in the process of vision. The intraocular physiology section discusses the perception of light rays and the transmission of light to the surface of the retina. The vision pathway section describes the process of refraction and the chemical reactions in the rods and cones that generate the nerve impulses transmitted to the occipital cortex to form images.
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire program and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment with >80% passing grade within a 90 day period of time (180 days for Professional Certification Programs). Certificate is accessible in PDF format immediately after satisfying requirements.
