  • Janet C: This program helped me understand the linkage of neoscience to human behavior, which gave me a different perspective to better understand myself and others. I found neoscience a fascinated topic and wish that we can spend more time (e.g. extend another day) to further explore ways of application. I also appreciate very much the efforts to raise awareness of ways to improve brain wellness (e.g., healthy menu in class, meditation, yoga, etc.)

  • John S: This hard hitting, intelligently presented course is an excellent addition to the programs at MIT. A superb balance of critical information about how to care for and feed our brains and a look at the hard science and data on developing the best in our teams. The Science of Yoga and Meditation were a key aspect of the class. With the Data indicating the Marines perform better on the battle field after meditation, clearly we should heed the science and add (at long last) the meditation and Yoga to our programs of Excellence.
