    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Prof. Vandevelde is great, she makes the class interesting. It's also a good class, because you learn a lot of things about human, and some animal, characteristics, that you wouldn't have thought about before because. It's really interesting to learn about how we develop personality and how does our brain works along.

    Course highlights:

    I think the most important thing I learned was about myself. I noticed how I've been growing up. I could also notice how other people character/personality develop, and understand, kind of, why people do things they do.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book chapters and take good notes. Make examples that can relate to yourself so you can remind them easier.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the information covered was not only interesting, it also provided the social, scientific, and environmental factors that affect how and why people exhibit certain behaviors.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course were learning about how the brain functions on a biological level, and also how an individual begins the process of learning. It was also interesting to learn about why certain experiences triggered certain behaviors. I learned many things about the brain, not only how the brain sends out signals to provide information to the rest of the body, but also how different chemicals in the brain can have a significant impact on behaviors. I learned about how the brain is conditioned to learn, and different factors that can help or hinder that process. I also learned about how impactful events can have lifelong consequences on how an individual views situations. It was very interesting to relate to my own life and notice patterns about how I think and what has affected that process.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, it is very important to make sure that you are taking the time to not only read the material, but also to understand it. It is not enough to memorize different terms about classical conditioning, it is important that you understand the concept behind the vocabulary and how that could be simulated in real life. If you put time and effort into reading and understanding, you will not only do well in this course, but also enjoy it.
