(PSYC 110) What do your dreams mean? Do men and women differ in the nature and intensity of their sexual desires? Can apes learn sign language? Why can’t we tickle ourselves? 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, religion, persuasion, love, lust, hunger, art, fiction, and dreams. 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.

This class was recorded in Spring 2007.

Great course content

Professor is great. Recording video and audio quality is pretty good for my iPad.
Only thing that would make 5 stars would be if we could see the slides and video demonstrations but I know there's copyright problems there... Still learning tons!
