(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.

Outstanding course - for Intro, Review or just plain fun

Found the material and lectures to be outstanding. I am 20 years removed from school where I earned a Math degree from a top school and I am now taking classes that always interested me and never had the time to fit into my schedule: Psychology, Genetics, Modern Social Thought and Constitutional Law from Yale, MIT and Oxford. This is what school should have been. You do it at your own pace, dabble where you want, and I am knocking off a couple a month. Good fun ! What's even more important is that I am introducing my kids and their friends families to these lectures, so that this material can be accessed by young minds at the high school and teen levels. For folks from difficult economic circumstances who cannot afford to attend these elite schools, this was a fabulous idea. Thank you Yale, MIT and all the rest for accessibility to these gems.
