Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course for anyone interested in either pursuing medicine or psychology, it teaches how the biological aspects influences human psychological functioning such as perception and decision-making.
Neuro-anatonmy and development was one of the first subjects, something people with biology backgrounds would be able to recall rather easily, but it is very term-heavy. This is followed by sensory systems and then psychological processes such as attention, learning, language, and basic motivations that lead to complex behaviors.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
The course was one day out of the week for three hours, which is rather difficult as there is a lot of material, so about an hour of review is necessary for retention. The first half of the course is based heavily in biological terms and processes, and it connects to the second half, so be sure to review earlier notes for better understanding of the material.
