If the idea of learning about the brain and neuroscience feels overwhelming and intimidating, Dr. Hayley is the perfect instructor for you. She's a busy mom of 2 with a great sense of humor, and she prioritizes bringing some fun and compassion to a field that can feel a little "hardcore". You can expect lots of real world experiences and examples and an open, caring learning environment where there are no stupid questions. Listening to one of Dr. Hayley's discussions feels more like a conversation with family member (a really smart family member).
By creating the Academy of Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience, Dr. Hayley Nelson combined her knowledge of the human mind and brain health with her passion for education, teaching, and consulting to truly make neuroscience approachable. Her students learn easy-to-swallow knowledge of how the brain works in real-life situations and are armed with an education in a subject they can use literally every single day. Not only that, they gain the power to serve their clients better and create an environment for their communities to thrive.
