Event description

Description

Are you a lifelong learner?

Uncover the inner workings of the most advanced computer on earth – your brain – in our 8-week, university-style lecture series, Understanding Your Brain.

The Rotman Research Institute (RRI) at Baycrest invites lifelong learners to join us as we discuss how the brain remembers, ages, navigates and even heals itself. Hear about the ground-breaking research underway, how brain science theory has evolved over the years, and what researchers continue to explore.

Course material will span the fields of cognitive neuroscience and cognitive aging and cover:

  • An introduction to the brain – Explore the parts of the brain and how it is studied
  • Memory, attention, and aging – Learn about memory and attention and how these abilities change as we age
  • Science in the media – Gain the skills to better understand media reporting on scientific findings

​Find out what other topics will be covered in our course syllabus.

Course Fee: $ 90 + tax for 8 lectures.

Course fees will support Baycrest’s research trainees.

Format: University-style lectures taught by Baycrest PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.
