Why do people get lost? What happens at the brain level? What are the neural bases of the sense of direction? What is the typical behavior of the missing person? During this course we will try to deepen all aspects of the psychology of the missing person and how the typical behavior of the missing person can influence the management of a search. This is a professional course intended for dog walkers, civil protection volunteers, search managers, psychology students and anyone involved in the search for missing persons.
In this first module lasting four weeks we will discover the latest scientific research on spatial cognition and sense of orientation in human beings to understand why people get lost.
