This course will highlight the most interesting experiments within the field of psychology, discussing the implications of those studies for our understanding of the human mind and human behavior. We will explore the brain and some of the cognitive abilities it supports like memory, learning, attention, perception and consciousness. We will examine human development - both in terms of growing up and growing old - and will discuss the manner in which the behavior of others affect our own thoughts and behavior. Finally we will discuss various forms of mental illness and the treatments that are used to help those who suffer from them.

The teacher was amazing! I was so entertained with the material we were taught throughout the few months!
Definitely recommend this course so anyone with curiosity to why we do what we do!
This course was awesome. The way concepts have been explained exceeded my expectations from this introductory course of Psychology. This course is perfect for non-psychology students as well.
I loved this course. Very good information, clear and concise and nicely taught by a very likeable professor. I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning the basics of Psychology.
I loved every minute of this course! Professor Joordens was very engaging and it was set at just the right pace. I'm looking forward to my next course already! The discussion forums are very helpful.
