ALERT – Course #619 Brave New Brain Research CANCELLED
Please be advised that we have had to cancel course #619 for the fall 2013 semester. Dr. James Giordano will be working on President Obama’s BRAIN Initiative at NIH and will, unfortunately, not be able to teach for Encore Learning this semester. We hope to be able to offer this course in the spring.
