Class Description

This class was an amazing class! It almost wasn't a class since most of the time it was guided discussion! Everyone sat in desks (well or on the floor... or lying on the floor) in a circle. Desi taught us then we'd talk about it. Topics ranged from thoughts to neurotransmitters to monkeys on the backs of pigs to sleeping to philosophy to just about anything! Everything's related to the brain, right? If you take this class, you'll know more about the brain than you can imagine! Oh, and be warned you will be spouting words no one besides the other "brains" will know!
