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.

Richard Hill

Richard Hill has emerged from a diverse and fascinating journey to become an innovative speaker on the mind, brain and the human condition. From a satisfying, if not quite famous, early career in the creative arts, Richard returned to intellectual studies at 42 (1996) beginning with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in linguistics. This triggered a curiosity that led to a diploma in counselling and a new career in psychotherapy. Studying continued and he has added three Masters degrees – an MA in Social Ecology; an MEd in Social Ecology; and a Masters in Brain and Mind Sciences (MBMSc) from Sydney University. Richard is also fortunate to be mentored by the esteemed Ernest Rossi PhD who has invited Richard into the International Psychosocial Genomics Research Team to study the impact of therapeutic practice on the genetic level. His fascination with the disturbing problem of stress and anxiety has resulted in his unique theory – The Winner-Loser World Theory – and the positive positive counterpoint – The Curiosity Approach: which highlights our Curiosity for Possibility. These theories revolutionize the way we deal with stress and anxiety and how we approach standard therapeutic practices. Richard’s books include a collection of inspirational short stories in Choose Hope and his explication of his Winner/Loser World Theory in How the ‘real world’ Is Driving Us Crazy! In addition, he is published in various journals and magazines around the world and in book chapters, including Perspectives on Coping and Resilience and Strengths Based Social Work Practice in Mental Health, published worldwide. His latest book is co-authored with his mentor, Ernest Rossi, The Practitioner’s Guide to Mirroring Hands.
