What Is a Brain?
Students will be exposed to the very basics of neuroscience as I talk about the basics of what a neuron is and how it works, then move into a discussion on the brain as an organ and how we use it to think and behave in our world.

This will be a video lecture accompanied by video clips, power point slides, and discussion. I try to keep the topics relevant to personal experience so that the knowledge is easily applicable and sparks an interest in students early on about the fascinating world of neuroscience. No experience is required beyond an interest in the topic. The first half of the lecture will focus on the cells that make up the brain called neurons. I'll discuss the different types of neurons, where they exist...
Students should be able to identify a basic neuron and give a brief summary of how it communicates to other neurons. Students will learn how the brain communicates to the rest of the body both on a voluntary and involuntary basis.
I'm a third year PhD student studying neuroscience and cognition. I have a degree from NCSU in cognitive neuroscience and 7 years of varying degrees of teaching experience ranging from high school biology tutor to teaching undergraduate courses.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
