IN-PERSON: Our Brains: Movement, Stroke and Stem Cells   

**This class will be taught In-Person**

**This is a 3 week course**

This course provides an introduction to normal brain function and how that function can be altered in neurological diseases. The following topics will be presented:

• Session one: Movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, are conditions that alter our ability to walk safely, speak, swallow, and perform daily activities. 

• Session two: Strokes are vascular events that may deprive us of the ability to move, feel, speak, and/ or perceive the world. There have been significant advances in therapy for stroke.

• Session three: Stem cell therapies are in their infancy, yet have the potential to improve many neurological disorders, such as spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s disease.

There are no prerequisites for this course.
