    Your Learning Brain

    Nothing but the facts on how the brain works when you're learning.

    In this Daily Bits Of Facts course, we dig into the latest research in the field of neuroscience to bring you bite-sized lessons on how the brain learns when it's influenced by factors such as stress, emotions, sleep, curiosity and information overload. 

    You should take this course if you're interested in finding the answers to these questions:

    • How does lack of sleep influence learning?

    • What role does curiosity play in academic achievement?

    • How does stress affect your "memory factory" - the hippocampus?

    • Are there cognitive activities that help the aging brain stay sharp?

    Let's learn about learning!

    Getting to Know Your Brain

    Everyday neuroscience for curious people

    Ever wished you had paid more attention in biology class? Do you feel that you know very little about the one organ you couldn't survive without? Interested in learning about neurotransmitters and what causes some of the most common mental disorders? 

    Look no further – this is the course for you!

    In ten very short lessons, we will go through some of the most important parts and systems in the brain. You will also get a brief, neurological explanation to what might cause depression, anxiety, and addiction.

    Don't expect to learn everything there is to know about the brain. Instead expect to learn enough to understand your reactions a bit better, and enough to drop a fun fact or two about the brain at your next dinner party.

    The Fundamentals of Learning: Creating Connection

    Master the skill of learning

    Most people don’t think of learning as a skill. They think of learning as a given. Whether you’re good at it or not. Whether you have it or not. We’re here to tell you that anyone can become a good learner if they apply some techniques that have been proven to make learning stick.

    Knowing how to learn is a skill, and in this course, we’ll show you the science-backed tricks to get good at it. 

    In order to make learning stick, we need to create connections in our brain. By hooking the new information to previous knowledge, we ensure the encoding of what we’re learning deep into our memory.

    If you want to know how to create these connections that make learning more effective, then this course is for you.
