So; another year, another term… what will I be doing this term (and thus what will I be posting about here)? A lot of this year will also involve my volunteering so I’ll mention that here too.
Currently, the plan looks like this:
Weeks 1-3 (& Week 6 Practical): Basic Neuro-Anatomy
- Brain circuits and projections
- Cytoarchitecture of the brain
- Anatomical features of the Brain
Weeks 1-10: Sensory and Motor Functions
- Visual cognitioN
- Connections between functions
- Cross-modal interaction
- Electrophysiological studies
- Movement perception
- Plasticity of the nervous system
Weeks 1-10: Advanced Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
- Analysis of results
- fMRI Techniques
- Stastistical Parametric Mapping
Weeks 1-10: Neuroscience of Consciousness
- Cortical plasticity
- Phantom Limbs
- Computational Models
In terms of Volunteering, I’ll be working at the Resource Room on Mondays and/or Wednesdays, I’m helping out at one more Anger Management course and still attending fortnightly activities meetings with Right Here.
Word-of-the-Year 2012: Connect
If you’d like a breakdown of my 2011 word “strength”, please see this post and a longer version of my 2012 choice can be found here. However, here’s is a rough breakdown for those interested in the odd reference I will likely make to my books and knowledge.
I’m looking to connect with:-
My space; through minimalism and through meditation
My spirit; of the land and of my heritage
My emotions; of compassion and inner peace
My potential; integrating knowledge and practice.
Therefore posts of emotions, meditation, reiki, shivanata and knowledge may be mentioned here in relation to these foci.
