Neuroscience: An Introduction to Your Brain
March 30, 2013
THIS CLASS IS FULL. PREFERENCE IS GIVEN TO THOSE WHO ATTENDED THE FIRST SESSION. IF YOU DID NOT ATTEND THE FIRST SESSION, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE A SEAT FOR YOU.
Can’t tell your amygdala from your orbitofrontal cortex? Curious about the neural underpinnings of everyday experiences like habits, cravings, decision making and memory? This three-session course offers a comprehensive overview of functional neuroanatomy – focusing on the major regions and networks in the brain that underlie perception, emotion, memory, self-regulation, and social interaction. Designed for those with little or no background in neuroscience, participants will become familiar with basic anatomy, major organizational principles of the brain, and the neural systems underlying a variety of processes we all experience on a daily basis.
