Certificate in Brain Health

You'll gain insights into the amazing brain and learn how to support health and happiness through lifestyle choices that impact this remarkable organ.

The brain is an amazing organ. It receives information through the five senses of sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. It's affected by virtually every aspect of our lives, including our moods, our activities, how well we sleep, our stress levels, and the foods we eat. In this innovative certificate program, you'll gain insights into the amazing brain and explore how to support health and happiness through lifestyle choices that impact this remarkable organ.

You'll start by taking a peek inside the skull to get to know the brain itself. You'll learn about the components of this organ to gain a deeper understanding of its structure and function. The program also examines the latest theories about the brain, including neuroplasticity, neurogenesis, and epigenetics.

Then you'll explore a variety of questions about how activities and life experiences can impact brain health and overall wellbeing. Can we program our brains for happiness? How do sleep quality and stress affect our mental and physical health? Can activities such as exercise, play, and even listening to music boost brain health?

Based on recent scientific studies, this program offers techniques and insights about how these and other aspects of life can support the healthy brain. This program is perfect for healthcare professionals and nurses or anyone who wants to better understand how supporting brain health can foster health, happiness, and wellbeing.
