(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.

It’s great to have this available in general. I want to let people know if they have access to itunes U you can get the slides, the mid term and final, the syllabus, a link to one of the books on google, and the answer key there for free. My only complaint would be that there seems to be the same three students who are deathly ill and are constantly coughing through every single lecture incessantly.


Such a great free course. The lectures are a compelling introduction to Psychology. I’m grateful to Yale for sharing them with the public.

Great professor, except missing slides..

This course is really interesting to me, but for some reason I feel quite left out. Ok, I am not paying tons of money to Yale, and it is somehow OK, not to get the full benefits. But, following Psychology course, without the help of slides and pictures is somewhat annoying to say the less. They could at least give references to the material they are using on the slides so we can search ourselves. Showing a video in lecture 2 and not even giving us a chance to find it on the web was like totally unacceptable. I will try couple of more lectures. Though I can imagine getting tired of all this guessing game…
