Prerequisites:

ENG106 or one lower-level liberal studies (LSO) or Critical Thinking (degree-level) course.

How does the brain control our thoughts, feelings, and actions? Can the brain improve with training? How does it repair itself after illness or injury? Such questions are at the basis of the topic of brain plasticity.
Students examine the relationships between the brain and mental processes, such as language, reasoning, and planning. They explore how thoughts change the structure and functions of the brain and how these changes alter thinking. They examine the various therapies used for brain injuries and mental disorders.
