Course Overview

Want to know what makes you who you are? Understanding how the brain works gives you a better idea of why you behave the way you do. The neurocognitive and behavioral approach focuses on separating the brain and aspects of human behavior into four regions that control your motivation, self-confidence, ability to handle stress, and more. Learn about the reptilian brain, paleolimbic brain, neolimbic brain, and prefrontal brain and how they come together to create human consciousness.
