How does the brain function? How does it interact with the body in order to control and mediate behaviors and actions? Though psychologists have long studied these questions, the workings of the brain remain, in large part, a mystery. In this course, we will explore the field of psychology devoted to the pursuit of these questions: neuropsychology or the study of the structure and function of the brain as it relates to psychological processes.

The World Federation for Mental Health prescribes: “Stimulate new areas of your brain and grow more connections among brain cells by intellectually challenging yourself. Solve a puzzle, learn a new musical instrument, read a challenging book, play a board or card game, attend a lecture or play, or write a short story”. This Neuropsychotherapy Course helps therapists and teachers adapt digital gamification and multimedia to provide such stimulation. It builds from basic audio-visual skills to comprehensive studio techniques, all within conventional budget limits.
