I love how neuroscience research can be workable in the real world. I have done several courses in this area and have found Ramon’s grasp of neuroscience and his practical examples of how to apply them in different situations exceptional. He makes it easy to integrate them into my thinking and practice. A great teacher!

This was a very valuable course and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to apply neuroscience in their work. Ramon is so knowledgeable on this subject and offers the latest research to back the science. He is a lifelong learner and his passion for neuroscience is evident when he is teaching. I walked away from this course with a desire to delve further into neuroscience as well as practical strategies to incorporate neuroscience in my coaching. I also have a better understanding of how to tell if research is robust and meaningful. There is so much covered in a short period of time and I look forward to relistening to all the lectures again, reading through the supporting research papers and listening to the amazing podcasts that Ramon has so generously offered this community. This course is definitely worth the investment!
