Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about the amygdala, the prefrontal cortex, and the hippocampus and their jobs within the brain. They will understand what different emotions could look like and how our brain can send stress signals to our body when feeling overly emotional. Students will be able to identify different calming strategies that can be used to return to a regulated state.
