How the human brain works: amazing new imaging technology allows scientists to answer more questions than ever before. How do we continue to learn throughout our lives? Why is change so hard? How can we manage our emotions to make the best decisions? A lot of the research could lead to useful ideas, yet most of us lack the opportunity to explore what it might mean for us. This study group sets out to do just that. Each week will focus on a different neuroscience research topic, such as: learning and memory, happiness, handling emotions, changing habits and addictions, the aging brain and brain health, understanding relationships, managing stress. You will receive articles describing some research on the week’s topic by email. Your discussion leader for the week will help us explore the topic and share ideas on practical applications. You will develop your own action plans for applying the learning. There is no book, but you will need access to email and a printer for the weekly articles. Join us in learning more about how our brains work – and using that knowledge to improve our everyday lives. Note: This is a repeat of the study group offered in the 2018 fall semester. This study group will meet for ten weeks, starting 03/06/19.
