Event Details

The Luria Neuroscience Institute offers new webinars about the brain and the mind. The webinars are intended for the mental health professionals concerned with brain health and brain disorders: psychologists, neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and other clinicians and researchers. Participants have the option of taking either a single webinar or both webinars.

CE credits: 3 CE Credits for a 3 hours long webinar.

In the past, many participants expressed preference for weekday programs, whereas many others – for weekend programs. To accommodate such divergent preferences, we are offering the webinar twice with identical content – on January 26 (Saturday) and January 31 (Thursday).

Fees: $145 for a three-hour webinar. For those requiring CE credits, there is a separate $15 processing fee charged by CE credit sponsor R. Cassidy Seminars.

  4. Agent-centered cognition and frontal-lobe functions.
  5. Executive functions and laterality.
  6. Sex differences in the functional organization of the frontal lobes.
