Course Description

Neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life.

Not that long ago, scientists believed the brain could only create new connections during childhood and once we reached adulthood, we would basically be stuck with whatever got wired up there. You know, the good old ‘you can’t learn an old dog new tricks’.

Well, turns out you can. And it’s all about Neuroplasticity

Our brain continues to create new neurons throughout our life and the ability to reorganize our wiring is called neuroplasticity. And this has tremendous consequences. It means that, whoever we are, whatever we’ve become, it is never too late to change. We can learn new skills, we can change old habits and create new ones. We can learn, we can grow, we can improve our lives.

Still, even though we all have this capacity, most of us stay stuck in a seamless dead-end street. Habits are hard to brake. Change requires too much effort. It’s too painful. And we end up settling for not even second best, but rather some average ranking down there. Our life as it could be remains a distant dream, because we gave up.

So with this course, I wan’t to change that. I want to harness the power of neuroplasticity and give people the opportunity to take life back into their own hands. Now don't expect long and boring theories, or technicalities about neurons and dendrites and glial cells, and so on. No, this course has a hands on approach. It's about how you can take action to use this Neuroplasticity to your advantage. How to concretely take action in your own life. More than anything else, this course is about empowerment. About how to reconnect with your dream life and start making that change.

What you'll find in the course:

This little gem will bring you cutting edge brain research, from enriched environments to implanting memories, over the anatomy of habits. It's packed with concrete tools, so you can apply this immediately in your own life: 

  • Over 30 exercises to stimulate brain activity, 
  • A detailed blueprint to form new habits or change existing ones
  • A step by step approach to neutralize painful memories

This course is unique. You won't find anything similar on Udemy. As always, I've thoroughly researched this topic for you, and bring you the best and latest findings.

Instructor Biography

Gregory Caremans, Neurocognitive and Behavioral Expert

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). 

Today, I've specialized in writing and producing high quality brain-related content. I have my own blog and create online courses. Here at Udemy I teach over 20.000 students and several of my courses are best-sellers: 

  • Neuroscience for Parents is the N°1 course on parenting 
  • Master your brain is the N°1 course on Personal Development 
  • Meet your brain is the N°1 free personal development course 
  • My Stress Management course is N°2 out of almost 900 courses on stress.

A lot of people who follow my blog or enroll in my courses are quite curious about this NBA-thing, theNeurocognitive and Behavioral Approach. When you google it, you hardly find information on it. The reason for this is simple: The NBA has its origins in France, and is called ANC, l'approche Neurocognitive et Comportementale. Now when you google that, you'll find loads of information, unfortunately, the vast majority of it is in french…

So that's where I come in. I have been the Director of the Institute of Neurocognitivism, which task is to spread the NBA, for several years. I worked directly with the founders of the NBA, Dr. Jacques Fradin and his colleagues, and became an expert in his approach.

in 2014 I created my Brain Academy and took the decision to take the NBA one step further by elevating it's reach from a regional scope to a worldwide reach, by translating the work of Jacques Fradin into English, and make it accessible to everyone. With my team, we decided to translate the NBA into every day, real life applications: How to use the NBA to raise children, to become a better manager, to deal with stress, and so on… We've added new perspectives and insights from brilliant minds such as Daniel Kahneman, David Brooks, Dan Ariely, Antonio Damasio, Steven Pinker, and many more

My blog and these courses were born out of a frustration, that regardless of the time and effort me and my team would put into coaching and training people, we would only reach so many people. It's great to have a vision to change the world, but if you don't have the means to activate it, your vision is no more than a fantasy…

By the end of 2014, the first course got online. Since then, over 30.000 people have joined us already. Still, personally, I won't rest before reaching at least 100.000, and then one million, and more. And there's a simple reason for that: Understanding how our brains work and their impact on our behavior has a major impact on how we see ourselves and others. It helps us be at peace with ourselves and be more tolerant towards others. In other words: it makes the world a better place to live in.

So join us in this brain-revolution. Join one of my groundbreaking courses and become part of the tribe
