Neuroscience 101

With Richard Hill

Neuroscience 101 Part 1 – Development This video session explores the early development of the brain from in utero to early life stages. In preparation for the programs on brain architecture, there is a discussion of the “directional” language used in brain description. The importance and relevance of the timing of neural development helps us to understand how the newborn might experience the world and how this might be relevant in future mental health development.

Neuroscience 101 Part 2 – Architecture This video approaches the brain as a construct of elements. These “areas” of the brain are described separately with their position, structure and domain of performance clearly labelled. These descriptions include the two neural areas that are classed as glands because they lie outside of what is considered to be brain structure – the pituitary and pineal glands. The key of these seemingly unique areas is that are connected, interactive and also integrate into collective regions.

This quick and painless introduction to the labyrinth of the brain is presented in what I would describe as the most accurate balance of informative and engaging. Much of this could be attributed to the excellent presentation style and skills of Richard Hill, the rest I believe is due to the bite-sized portion of the information presented, turning this course into just the most enjoyable appetizing experience. One suggestion though - as the pace is quick and the information slides used in the presentation are integrated into the video itself and thus are not clickable or possible to enlarge, a textbase PDF attached to the course material as an addendum, and/or a linkable list of additional resourced related to it would be highly beneficial. True, everything is googlable today, but not all google results go particularly well with the purpose and the focus of this course. A more direct point in the right direction towards additional information would be of great help and an important time-saver.
