About the class

Your brain is an awe-inspiring tool. In this class, you'll experience that power firsthand as you explore how it controls memory, movement, and sight. You'll also discover how the brain functions through live activities, test yourself with illusions and fun puzzles, and see a real human brain specimen! To fully participate, be sure to attend class with paper and a marker!
