B3222: Top 5 and 1/2 Amazing Brain Facts in Splash! Fall 2013 (Nov. 02 - 03, 2013)
Buried not so deeply inside the gooey fathoms of your brain are the secrets that have plagued poets and philosophers for millennia. That's right, they are just sitting there mocking us. But don't be fooled my friends. The brain can be a harsh mistress. Centuries of scientists laboring away their lives in windowless basement laboratories (which always smell oddly like dusty bologna) have discovered exactly 5 and 1/2 brain facts. Okay that's not exactly true. They have discovered a lot more than that. But only 5 and 1/2 of these facts were so face-meltingly awesome that upon learning them I fell out of my chair and wept uncontrollably on the floor for hours. I recommend you bring your own helmet and box of facial tissues to class. While your at it a change of pants isn't a terrible idea. (Okay just kidding you don't need any of that stuff)


B1450: A Neuroscientists Messes with Your Head in Splash! Spring 2011 (Apr. 16 - 17, 2011)
Oh yeah! That's right! I'm going to mess with your head! I'm going to use all the best tricks I've learned over the last 12 years of studying the brain to play tricks on you. You will leave confused, dumbfounded, befuddled, betickled (betickling limited to the temporal-parietal cortex only), and likely with unexplainable amorous (but platonic) feelings for pigeons.


B1468: Top 5 and 1/2 Amazing Brain Facts in Splash! Spring 2011 (Apr. 16 - 17, 2011)

S760: Top 5 Amazing Brain Facts in Splash! Spring 2010 (Apr. 17 - 18, 2010)
Decades of research in neuroscience and psychology have taught us that the reality of how the brain works is even more amazing than we could have ever imagined. Explore the fuzzy boundaries between perception and consciousness. Then walk the tightrope between consciousness and attention. Learn the dirty secrets your brain has been hiding from you your whole life. Discover colors that have no names. This and many other face melting, mind numbing, cortex twisting discoveries await you.


S492: Top 5 coolest facts about the brain. in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
Like the sea the brain does not give up her mysteries without a fight. Science, however is relentless. In this brief course I present my top 5 most awe inspiring, face melting, fuse popping secrets that the brain has given up to date. These secrets that will change the way you look at the world and yourself (unless you know all of this stuff already). I will cover topics ranging from the neuroscience of animal superpowers to how the brain just plain makes stuff up. Your nucleus accumbens will fire my friend ...that much I will promise you.
