  • No previous knowledge required - I will take you step by step through the different concepts, models and brainstructures presented in the course

  • Do not expect exercises to switch from one brainstructure to another as that is covered in my other, more advanced courses, which you will find here on Udemy as well

Description

FREE... ( for now)

Over 45.000 students enrolled. Raving reviews.

"...Thank you for the awesome FREE course, it is outstanding!"

"... a brilliant intro to neuroscience..."

"... a wealth of information, good solid course to have."

"... I never looked at my brain from this perspective"

Yes, you just found the number 1 free personal development course on Udemy (out of over 280). Well done!

So what makes this one so special?

You probably heard about the 'right brain - left brain' theory. Well, forget everything about it. It's just not true. Recent studies show reality is far more complex and nuanced than that.

The NBA (or Neurocognitive and Behavioral Approach) is a fascinating, innovative and multi-disciplinary approach born out of 25 years of scientific research. Discover how 4 brain structures are responsible for all of our decisions and internal conflicts.

Once you learn to recognize what part of your brain is active, you start looking at the world from a totally different point of view. A lot of things start to make sense.

What to expect...

This high quality course will walk you through the different brain structures, breaking down complex theories into easy to digest chunks of information. The narrative style is humorous, without overdoing it, as not to overshadow the fascinating content being conveyed. The course is well paced, with closed captions (subtitles) enabled for greater ease.

It's really a no-brainer to follow this course. Or as several students stated (scroll down and check the reviews below): "... Everybody should take this..."

This course is an introduction to the NBA. For a more advanced course, please check 'Master your brain', 'The Science of Leadership' or 'Neuroscience for Parents' available here on Udemy.

Hi, my name is Gregory Caremans. I'm the founder of the Brain Academy.

I'm a psychologist with a Master in communication, specialized in the Neurocognitive and Behavioral Approach. I'm the former Director of the Institute of Neurocognitivism in Brussels (Belgium). 

With the Brain Academy we've specialized in writing and producing high quality brain-related content. Mostly, we create online courses. I'm very proud to say that we have a partnership with The Economist where they offer our courses to their readers. Our courses were also featured in the magazine Entrepreneur and CNN. And I was invited to give my first TEDx Talk in December of 2018.
