How does your brain work? How do you learn? How can you keep your brain happy and healthy? We will start with an overview of different sections of the whole brain, and zoom all the way down to the tiny cells that construct the neocortex. Traveling inside the brain we will explore how brain cells communicate, the incredible processes of thought, imagination, and memory. We will discuss the latest neuroscience research on the human brain and how what we now know can inform our thinking process and our emotional health. Come learn about your amazing brain, a work of architectural genius!
