Neuroscience - The Twenty- First Century Brain

This lecture course will present leading research from Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience. The research is driven by an improved understanding of the brain’s ability to repair itself, and the increasing success of different approaches from drug and behavioural treatments to engineering solutions. The area is in particular focus presently, because of the increase in neurodegenerative diseases in line with the ageing population.

Topics include: stimulating the brain − healing the mind; stem cells and neurodegeneration; stimulating the human brain using computers; the use of MRI in neuroscience research.

Participants who attend at least seventy-five per cent of the course will receive a certificate of attendance.
