About the Course

Learn how the nervous system produces behavior, how we use our brain every day, and how neuroscience can explain the common problems afflicting people today. We will study functional human neuroanatomy and neuronal communication, and then use this information to understand how we perceive the outside world, move our bodies voluntarily, stay alive, and play well with others....

This course has turned out to very profitable, especially if you are not an expert in anatomical and clinical terms as is my case. In my opinion, this course is extremely interesting, congratulations.

La profesora explica muy bien algunas cosas. Pero se traba muchas veces al hablar, y termina siendo muy molesto. Tengo la sensación de que hay algunas cosas que quedaron incompletas.

Very monotonous.

Some other courses bring in other instructors or videos that enhance the learning process (at least for me) e.g. social psychology course.

As someone with both a BS an an MS in science, this course is far too easy to be considered college level. My high school biology and psychology courses included more information than this class. As a result, too many simple concepts (such as linear vs. angular acceleration) are explained in patronizing detail. And we don't need a 'content warning' for a biology lab: sheep brains aren't "graphic" - they are simply biological.

In addition, rather than drawing scribble-like diagrams on the whiteboard, the instructor should use digital images. In almost every lecture, I paused the recording and found a clearer image using a google search which I then then copied or printed for my notes.

interesting course however, you can easily learn this in high school. It is unclear whether to have a written assignment or video bite. You cannot have both. It is simply too much work!
