About This Item

Chantilly, Virginia: Teaching Company, 2007. DVDs. New. In plastic wrap. Thirty-six 30-minute lectures on six new DVDs in a new case along with a new 190-page paperback illustrated Course Guidebook.

Understanding the Brain, a 36-lecture course by award-winning Professor Jeanette Norden of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, takes you inside this astonishingly complex organ and shows you how it works, from the gross level of its organization to the molecular level of how cells in the brain communicate. With its combination of neurology, biology, and psychology, this course will help you understand how we perceive the world through our senses, how we move, how we learn and remember, and how emotions affect our thoughts and actions.
