Personal Brain Management – 2017 Summer

• Psychiatry 182

• 4 UC credits in 6 weeks

• Now approved as an elective for the Neuroscience Major by the NSIDP Curriculum


Have we entered the next stage of human evolution now that we know enough about the

brain to change its function? What does the future hold for those who want to enhance

cognitive functions or prevent the onset of brain disorders? What can you do today to

change habits, leveraging knowledge of neuroplasticity? This course engages students in

learning about the current state of neuroscience knowledge regarding: cognitive training,

habit formation and change, “happiness” and positive psychology interventions, selfmonitoring

and the quantitative self, time management, executive function management,

mindfulness, and creativity. The course includes practical application of knowledge acquired

via class and readings.
