Lessons are formed in the simple way and are easy to understand. By the end of the weekly module I was able to retain most of the things clearly.

I really enjoyed this course.

I liked Peggy's style of delivering lectures.

it is great for medical student

An outstanding course, delivered by a marvelous teacher. Coverage of topics is excellent, leading me to dig more deeply into several of the areas. One focus of interest is decision-making, something the "Neuroeconomics" course by Vasily Klucharev addresses quite well. This course connects some of that to the rest of the CNS. Professor Peggy Mason does a great job connecting brain and nervous system features to illness, particularly to stroke. I'm 77 - this is important to me!
