Brain Health CERTIFICATE SUMMARY
The brain is an amazing organ. It receives information through the five senses of sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. It’s affected by virtually every aspect of our lives, including our moods, our activities, how well we sleep, our stress levels, and the foods we eat. In this innovative certificate program, you’ll gain insights into the amazing brain and explore how to support health and happiness through lifestyle choices that impact this remarkable organ. You will learn about the components of the brain and examine the latest theories about neuroplasticity, neurogenesis, and epigenetics.
The outcome of this certificate is for the learner to describe the basic structures and functions of the brain and explain how happiness, music, meditation, sleep, play, and lifestyle factors (such as stress, nutrition, physical activity, substance abuse, and nature) affect brain health.
