About the Course

What are people most afraid of? What do our dreams mean? Are we natural-born racists? What makes us happy? What are the causes and cures of mental illness? This course tries to answer these questions and many others, providing a comprehensive overview of the scientific study of thought and behavior. It explores topics such as perception, communication, learning, memory, decision-making, persuasion, emotions, and social behavior. We will look at how these aspects of the mind develop in children, how they differ across people, how they are wired-up in the brain, and how they break down due to illness and injury....

I just ended this course smiling & 'happy' with the final topic. 🎉 Thank you for the wonderful experience. Professor Bloom did a great job in explaining and a very pleasant, soothing voice to present!

Professor Bloom has quite engaging style of teaching and the animations in this course provided nice visual reference.Overall, it's a nice course if you want to learn basic introduction of psychology.

Although touching on several interesting topics and tought by the very nice and knowledgable Professor Bloom, in my opinion the course lacked depth. Although this is not true for every lecture in this course, overall I would rather recommand the Introductory course on Psychology by Steve Joordans which goes more into detail in mostly similar topics. For someone who wants to get to know the scope of Psychology this course may nevertheless also be great. :)

Audio in video lessons are breaking and inaudible.
