everything in the orange box is BCPM. neuro is BCPM. in general, psych classes are not BCPM unless they heavily focus on biology. you can always list it as BIOL and they can change it if they feel like it's not biologically based enough, no penalty to you if they change the classification.

statistics is obviously a math class.

If the Neuropsych class is >50% hard science, then it can legitimately be considered BCPM. The course description should support your decision, in case you need to defend it.

I looked at the classification guide and see that Neuroscience is listed around BIOL but is that only for neuroscience courses that begin with BIOL? (e.g-BIOL 311, 454, etc.) or does that also mean exclusively neuroscience courses (starting with NEUR) are included? I'm confused...
courses starting with NEUR are included, but when you enter it in AMCAS, you classify it as biology.
