This course covers the relation of structure and function at various levels of neuronal integration. Topics include functional neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, sensory and motor systems, centrally programmed behavior, sensory systems, sleep and dreaming, motivation and reward, emotional displays of various types, "higher functions" and the neocortex, and neural processes in learning and memory.

Good subject, bad audio

I liked these classes but, the audio quality doesn't help

Very thorough course.

I've been following brain science for more than a decade, and I must say this is the moist comprehensive set of neuroscience lectures I have found available to the public. Subject extends from the first researches to latest conclusion and methods, giving a very complete view of the subject.

Re. cellular mechanisms

The lecture was thorough. For all these types of lectures I find it beneficial to have reviewed diagrams and tables prior to listening to the lectures. It is best to use these to reinforce what was already taught during class.
