About the Event
In this MOOC, we will cover all the aspects of the interactions between microbes and the nervous system, starting from an infectious perspective to explore the role of our microbiota in brain functions and potentially neurologic disorders. All along the chapters, you will see how microbes, historically thought as harmful threats, are actually constantly shaping who we are by communicating with our brain.
This MOOC is organized in 5 weeks. Each week is composed of 4 to 6 sequences. In each sequence, you find a 10 minute video and a multiple choice test to help students check their understanding. The videos are in English subtitled in French and in English. All the tests are in English.
This MOOC is aimed at people interested in understanding the complex interactions between microbes and our nervous system, especially our brain.
