How does your brain work?

This 15-lecture audio course will increase your excitement and wonder about the mysterious organ responsible for so many of the invisible but important things (like love, personality, and emotion) that make us who we are.

The field of neuroscience is booming, heralding bold new discoveries and fresh insights into human nature, our behaviors, the mind–body connection, and even artificial intelligence.

Now, How Your Brain Works: A User’s Guide to Neuropsychology gives you exactly the sort of orientation you need to contextualize these discoveries and understand your brain.

Your guide is Professor Gerald D. Griffin (Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania), winner of several awards from national research institutions and of the Janet L. Andersen Excellence in Teaching Award at Hope College.

You will find that Prof. Griffin brings an infectious energy to every lecture. He makes you appreciate what a fascinating and multidisciplinary field neuroscience is—building on the discoveries of biology, chemistry, physics, and psychology to arrive at new understandings of the nervous system and behavior.

Though this course, you will gain a better understanding of

Neuroscience.

Praise for Gerald Griffin

“Dr. Gerald Griffin is an excellent facilitator in and outside of the classroom. He is innovative and passionate about student learning and success. We worked together and created our department’s first NeuroBeat Cafe, a journal club for undergraduates to explore the intersection of neuroscience and cardiovascular physiology. His innovation was responsible for the creation of the first-year undergraduate Cell and Genetic Biology debates. He taught a neuroscience course and remained after hours for weekly tutorial sessions. We co-mentored Ph.D. students who are traditionally underrepresented in STEM. These students are completing postdocs and Dr. Griffin was an integral component of their success story.”
– Chastity N. Bradford, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biology, Tuskegee University
