BARC101 The Brain - Closed

June 21 through July 11, 2014
Enrollment is limited to 14 students.

(1 course credit = 4 semester hours)

 This course will introduce students to the brain and its functions.  Our approach will be to examine the human brain from a lifespan perspective (infancy/childhood, adolescence, adulthood and aging) focusing on critical changes, behaviors and risks representative of each stage in the life of the brain.

The Brain will be taught by Trinity College associate professor of Biology and Neuroscience, Dr. Hebe Guardiola-Diaz.  Dr. Guardiola-Diaz is currently the director of the neuroscience program at Trinity where she conducts research at the intersection between chemistry and neurobiology.  Professor Guardiola-Diaz is a native of Puerto Rico and is excited to be teaching this course in the beautiful city of Barcelona in 2014.
