Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment. BioPharma Institute ReviewsThe nervous system controls, organizes and communicates with the various tissues that make up an organism. It is the primary command center of the body. Every perception, be it taste, touch, smell, or sight is mediated through the nervous system, and every action begins with nervous system activation. The various components of the nervous system integrate sensory information gathered from the body and relay it to the brain, which ultimately determines the appropriate response. This course describes how individual nerve cells communicate with one another.
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).
