In your initial post, introduce yourself to your peers and your instructor.. Your introduction should include information on your current understanding of physiological psychology, neuroscience, and neuropsychology as well as any previous work or other experience(s) that may be relevant to these topics (e.g., working with individuals with traumatic brain injuries, personal experiences with individuals who have had a stroke, dementia, etc.). Include a brief description of your current understanding of theories related to brain development and/or aging. (Please do not share any personal information you would be uncomfortable having read in a public forum.) As opposed to a more general introduction, this should provide a picture of how you intend to use the material learned in this course in your future career and life plans.
