Brain Physiology, Brain Hemispheres & Brain Waves (Anatomy for Yoga Teachers)

Lesson Overview

In this lesson, we introduce the physiology (functions and relationships) of the brain, including the brain’s hemispheres and brain waves.

Objective

Provide a more accurate understanding of how the left and right hemispheres differ and relate. Describe brain waves and how they are measured.
