eight richly illustrated presentations, you will move from coarse
anatomy into neural networks and all the way down to the genes within
your neurons. You will be astounded at how all the parts and
processes work together to create mind.
a complete picture of the brain, we look at the essential elements of
brain function, moving from the comparatively large to the very
small. Surprises lurk around every corner. Each presentation begins
with a “leading thought” for you to ponder while viewing the
video. Afterwards, you can explore additional resources, test and
extend your understanding with application questions.
will learn about:
Anatomy: the major players in brain functioning
Blood supply: its intimate interplay with brain cells
Neural networks and clusters: the mind comes to life
Neurons and glia: the brain’s worker bees
Brainwaves: Masses of neurons working together
Neurotransmitters: Magic molecules that make neuronal communication
Genetics: An active third level of organization
Manipulating the brain: New frontiers of chemical, electrical,
magnetic, and optical interventions … plus bio- and neurofeedback
to improve brain functioning
