The Human Brain is a fairly impressive organ - enabling us to learn a language, paint a picture, fly a plane or shoot a gun. In this course we will look at the brain development of humans from conception to early 20s. We will look at its creation and development, how it changes over time and how it works. We will also consider the tool and tricks our brain comes with, the way we learn over our first two decades, and how modern developments influence where brain research will take us next.
