This module covers the basics of what you need to know about the human brain. It puts the brain under the microscope, walking you through the different technical terms which can sometimes make neuroscience seem impenetrable. In doing so we explain to you how messages are sent from one part of the brain to another to coordinate your thinking, how the regions of the brain work together in networks, the importance of the different neurotransmitters and how the brain is continually adapting itself to take on board new pieces of information. Although this knowledge may at times seem irrelevant from your day to day job as a coach, it forms a basic foundation on which you can build your expanding neuroscience knowledge so it is important to take the time to get the facts right.
