Mental Disorder or Mental Diversity?
Everyone’s brain is wired differently. It is what makes each of us unique. Unfortunately, historically in society this uniqueness is often defined as a neurological problem such as ADHD, Autism, depression, or anxiety. A newer perspective has emerged that challenges this historical way of thinking about neuropathology. In this course you will gain a deeper understanding how brains work and ways to appreciate neurological differences.

Do Plants Think?
Can a plant really, like a human, sense and respond to their environment and change accordingly? While this concept may seem bizarre this way of thinking was proposed as early as 1880 by Charles Darwin. In this course you will gain an understanding of basic neurobiology and how these basic biological concepts apply to plant perception.
