WSP 87 — A User's Guide to the Brain
We will address these topics and others: How is the human brain functionally organized, and where does the brain store memory? Where in the brain might emotions such as happiness or sadness reside? How does the brain change over time? Can the field of neuroscience make sense of attention deficit disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, and depression? The goal of this course is to equip students with an ability to understand and think critically about the mind and brain.
This course does not require previous coursework in
biology and is designed to challenge and pique the interest
of anyone curious about the field.
Due to its short format, this workshop may not be taken for a Letter Grade. However, Credit/No Credit is available.
