(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 overview of psychology

I loved this lecture series. Professor Bloom is extremely interesting, engaging, funny, and knowledgable. I listened to one lecture on my way to work and one on my way home, and looked forward to the daily commute! Other than the guest lecturer on clinical psychology (#18), whom I thought was monotone and uninteresting, every other lecture is fantastic. I find myself referring to topics in the lectures all the time lately, with sentences beginning with, "Did you know..."

Now I begin to see why attending Yale costs $40,000 per year: professors like this.

My only complaint with the series is I wish they could have left the audio in from the in-class presentations, because most of them sounded like they would be interesting, but they were cut out and then the lecture and discussions continued, so I'd have to try to infer what happened in the videos. I presume there were copyright issues or something, and although it's a small annoyance, it doesn't detract from the overall value of the course.


Paul Bloom clearly knows exactly what hes talking about, regardless of where you are, or what you do, you cant help but be fascinated. Phenomenal.

My experience.

As an 8th grade student, psychology has always been my number one choice of career. Having said that, these audio tapes have helped me to early on understand what I will be explaining and talking about when I am a professional certified psychologist.
