About the CPD course
In this course Professor Jaak Panksepp provides an introductory account of the seven basic emotion systems that are critical to understanding the brain. The course outlines the prototypical behaviours associated with each system; and explains how the basic emotion systems are activated. Professor Panksepp also explains the function of the classic neurotransmitters and key hormones and peptides that mediate the basic emotion systems.
