Academic Term and Year
The human brain is an enormously complex system. It regulates all of our physical and mental functions and shares who we are. This six-week online course explores this organ. Each week, participants will draw from essays, media resources, textbook readings, and online discussion forums to explore aspects of brain function - from decision making to expressing ourselves. A weekly case study, written by a specialized neuroscientist, will describe cutting edge research in areas as wide-ranging as using functional MRls as a diagnostic tool, the neurobiology of hearing and the evolution of mammalian brains.
