Learners will have an understanding of how the brain functions. They will be able to discuss intelligently contemporary issues in brain research such as the brain and mental illness, critical thinking, moral development, new theories of intelligence, differences in male and female brains, wisdom and intelligence and others. An underlying goal is to have students become very interested in brain research and its implications for education to the point that they will continue to follow developments in this field for the rest of their lives.
