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.

TOP REVIEWS FROM UNDERSTANDING THE BRAIN: THE NEUROBIOLOGY OF EVERYDAY LIFE
This course was fantastic and transformative. Studying the brain changes your life, and this course gave me a solid grounding to better understand everything else I learn about the brain.
Very interesting course. I hope there are more course like this which focused to some interesting issue like split-brain, emotion, personality, sleep based on how the brain works.
Great course to understand the brain and its vastness! Thank you, Dr. Peggy Mason, for this excellent course. I highly recommend it for anybody new to the field of the brain sciences.
