The Science of Brain Disorders
- Yes--my Udemy course called Cells and Tissues of the Body by John Young
This course offers the latest information on the symptoms and causes of brain disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Anorexia Nervosa, Sleep Apnea, and others. The specific types of neurons that are affected, and the molecules that cause their death, are described in an effort to portray the search for cures for these disorders
Who this course is for:
- High school students or older
I am currently retired, but taught my students about cells for 35 years. I received my B.S. in biology from Cornell University in 1972 and my Ph.D. in Anatomy from UCLA in 1977. I have authored 45 publications in scientific journals or books, and published 11 books (4 for the general public, 7 as textbooks or books for scientists). I live in Virginia with my wife Paula. I have two sons who make me very proud.
