Most women are served in co-ed settings, yet the design of behavioral health services rarely takes sex and gender differences into account. This CE course provides principles and practices that co-ed centers can use to assess and improve their programs to better serve women.
Sleep has been ascribed a critical role in cognitive functioning. This advanced CEU course provides evidence linking sleep to mechanisms of protein synthesis-dependent synaptic plasticity and synaptic scaling. How disruption of sleep by acute and chronic stress may impair these mechanisms and degrade sleep function is also considered.
Exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) duration plays a prominent role in promoting healthy brain and cognitive development in human children. This advanced CEU course examines whether and how the duration of EBF impacts the neural processing of emotional signals by measuring electro-cortical responses to body expressions in 8-month-old infants.
