SIMPSON COLLOQUIUM 101-D Your Brain on Nature
Have you ever taken a forest bath? When was the last time you unplugged and went on a walk in the woods? Did you know hugging a tree might lower your blood pressure and improve your mood? Current neuroscience research is taking us back, far back in time and suggesting a multitude of physiological benefits to immersion in nature. Following the work of Dr. Eva Selhub and Dr. Alan Logan, in this course, Your Brain on Nature will look at the effects that both nature and technology have on the brain's functioning and one's overall well-being. Your Brain on Nature offers an antidote to technology addiction through scientifically proven, nature-based methods for reducing stress, improving cognitive powers, and boosting the efficiency of exercise. And, we'll go on hikes (without our digi!) (CRITTHINK, WRITCOM)
