Introduction to Psychology

by Yale University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Great professor, except hiding the 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…

Amazing professor

I learned a lot from listening to this and he's very funny and informative I very much enjoyed learning from him

I’m sure this is a great course, but I won’t find out due to technical errors.

I was able to watch the first and second lectures, but once I got to the third, and every lecture thereon, I received an error message telling me that iTunes does not support QuickTime. I tried some fixes (running iTunes in 32 bit mode, which the program didn’t allow at all, and an upgrade to 12.xx) but nothing fixed the problem. Please allow iTunes to play older videos!
